...forgiveness changes people.
Just like Stephen's last words were used by God to change Saul into Paul (see Acts 7:60), so can our words in response to our enemies be used by God to change them into the people He wants them to be.
Lord, teach me how I need to control my tongue. I need all the power of the Holy Spirit to not respond to hate with hate. Fill me today, Holy Spirit, so that I can be a good witness for Jesus, by your power. Only by your grace is this possible, Lord. Please give me more grace. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Thanks to John McGary for leading me to this one.
