Pause…
Take a couple of deep breaths.
Recall that you are in the presence of God.
You are accepted, loved, and blessed.

1 Peter 3:8–9
8 Finally, all of you, have unity of spirit, sympathy, love for one another, a tender heart, and a humble mind.
9 Do not repay evil for evil or abuse for abuse; but, on the contrary, repay with a blessing. It is for this that you were called—that you might inherit a blessing.

Jesus healed the sick and fed the hungry.
He treated sinners, and tax collectors with kindness and compassion.
He even chose to forgive the Romans and the leaders of the Jews who crucified Him.

Who do I need to repay with a blessing?
How can I be more like Jesus?

Pray to God in your own words or perhaps use the prayer below.
Holy and Loving God,
You teach me to do what you have done.
You ask me to follow You.
Thank you for your kindness and love.
Thank you for your example.
Help me to become more like You.
Amen
