An offended brother is stronger than a fortress, and quarrels are more difficult to overcome than castle gates.                  – Prov 18:19

Reflection. Quarreling keeps people out of your love.  It prevents love and peace from finding a resting place in your home.  A prayerful person can deal with a bickering relative because God supplies patience in difficult situations.  Repeat the name of Jesus ten times, before you express your anger.

Prayer. Dear Lord, help me to remain calm in difficult family situations.
