We’re to be like Jesus, right? Jesus is God. God is love. Love is patient. So, to be a little more like Jesus today – to let his love live in you and through you – ask him to show you where you could be a little more patient.

Like, wait for your friend who always takes ages to pack up after each class. Let your mom finish what she has to say before going ‘Ja, but!’ Listen to what your little sister finds exciting and you find lame. Breathe.

‘Love is … patient’ (1 Corinthians 13v4)

Do you know Sara Bareilles’ song Brave? Check these lyrics out:

‘You can be amazing / You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug / You can be the outcast / Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love / Or you can start speaking up …

…I wonder what would happen if you / Say what you wanna say / And let the words fall out / Honestly, I wanna see you be brave’

Paul said ‘speak the truth in love as we grow to be more like Jesus.’ (Ephesians 4v15)

Is there love-filled truth you need to speak today? A word to encourage or make someone feel loved? Or maybe: ‘stop, enough!’

Go on – be brave, loving, kind with your words today.
