Children practice self-control

Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave room for the wrath of God; for it is written, “Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord.” (Romans 12:19 NRSV)

Не мстіться самі, улюблені, але дайте місце гніву Божому, бо написано: Мені помста належить, Я відплачу, говорить Господь. (До римлян 12:19 Ukrainian)

Dear heavenly Father ~ thank you for this new day that arrives with bright hopes for all people who are putting our trust in your beloved Son. Help us, Lord, as we are in fearful awe of our status as your children. Reignite the fires of faith within our cold hearts so that we will enthusiastically tell the entire world about salvation from sin’s grip and the positive hope of eternal life. Help all your children to practice self-control especially when we think we must push back and get even with some who have stepped on our toes. Show this weak and beggarly world the full extent of your mighty power over all forms of evil. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
