Lord, I need grace and forgiveness. I need compassion so much. Help me to look for these first from you and not others. I can rest in you, in your love and grace. Help me to give love, grace, patience, and forgiveness to my family. I can’t put aside my selfish sins without your help, Lord. “But now you must put them all away: anger, wrath, malice, slander, and obscene talk from your mouth … Put on then compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.” Col. 3:8, 14.
