Where there is envy and selfish ambition, there will also be disharmony and every type of wickedness.  – Jas 3:16

Reflection.  Words and actions can be abrasive and upsetting.  Those who give in to their feelings can easily disturb the peace.  Those who practice self-restraint help to create an atmosphere of emotional comfort.

Prayer.  Dear Father, give me the strength to hold my tongue when I want to scream in anger.
