Turn from evil and do good.—Psalm 34:14 (NIV)

When something bad happens, do you complain, dwell on the past and spread negativity? This Scripture tells us to do the opposite; not just to turn away from evil, but to do good. When you encounter anger, jealousy or hatred strive to make things better. Bring love and understanding to the problem.

Today's Prayer:

Lord, restore me with Your peace. When I’m on the edge of losing my temper, give me the patience and foresight to return good for evil.

Adapted from 60 Days of Prayer, a new publication from Guideposts
