One of the hardest things about being in relationship with other people is learning how to love them even when it’s difficult. Whether they intend to or not, people are always going to hurt us or make us mad. And whether we mean to or not, we’re going to do the same to others. In those moments, we’re all faced with a choice: to be patient and gentle or to be angry and upset. Though choosing patience or gentleness with those who hurt us can feel impossible, with God’s help anything is possible. Who is someone you have a hard time showing patience or gentleness? Ask God to help you be patient with that person.
