I know that Scripture contains all truth…and I want to walk with integrity.
Help me to rightly discern What Would Jesus Do?
I want to be loving without enabling…to be accepting without embracing. I know I should not respond intemperately or with disdain. I know I should be slow to speak and I should not react before thinking…but I fail so often. I know that love and acceptance both require speaking the unpopular truth. I know my response should be gentle and kind. I know I’m not trying to win a debate…but I fail so often.
Father, give me the wisdom and the temperament to engage the deceptions and lies without destroying souls…without closing the door on future opportunities for influence…Teach me when to silence my tongue for the sake of Your Kingdom.
Scripture: “But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.” James 3:17
