Dear Lord, thank you for teaching me new truths while I meditate on Your Word. As I read this 1 Peter 3:8-9 today, I realized you were talking to me about my reaction to a situation yesterday. In reality, I was offended at how I was treated and what was said to me. However, you made me realize it was my selfish, prideful heart that I allowed to control me. I am sorry. Help me not offend others, but more importantly, help me not to be offended, even if that was the intent. Please help me to be patient and kind at all times.
