Do not withhold good from those who deserve it when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor, “Come back later; I’ll give it tomorrow,”–when you now have it with you. Do not plot harm against your neighbor who lives trustfully near you. Do not accuse a man for no reason–when he has done you no harm. (Prov 3:27-30 NIV)
Prayer: LORD, I have at times seen my relationship with You as distinct from relationships with other people. Thank You for this reminder that how I treat others is important to You and that it affects our relationship. If I can do something good to or for anyone, help me do it without resentment or hesitation. I want to reflect Your character and integrity in how I treat everyone with whom I interact. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
