Thoughts for Today
Be realistic in your expectations of others and of yourself. One of the quickest ways to overcome hurt and anger, even prevent it, is to adjust your expectations. Jesus told us to love our neighbors as ourselves. Today's scripture describes God's kind of love. Kind. Patient. Never selfish or quick tempered.
God's Word also makes it clear that no one is perfect. Jesus, the perfect Lamb of God, walked the earth to live and then to die for our sins. When we come to him, we are forgiven.

But God extends us his unconditional love and grace to us, and we need to extend that same love and grace to others.
