…in everything we commend ourselves as ministers of God,
through much endurance, in afflictions,
hardships, constraints, beatings, imprisonments,
riots, labors, vigils, fasts;
by purity, knowledge, patience, kindness,
in a Holy Spirit, in unfeigned love,
in truthful speech, in the power of God;
with weapons of righteousness
at the right and at the left;
through glory and dishonor, insult and praise.
We are treated as deceivers
and yet are truthful;
as unrecognized and yet acknowledged;
as dying and behold we live;
as chastised and yet not put to death;
as sorrowful yet always rejoicing;
as poor yet enriching many;
as having nothing and yet possessing all things.
– 2 Corinthians 6:1-10

Hard though it may be, help me to always choose Your way of peace and reconciliation, Lord.
