Leaves of Life - July 3

JULY THIRD

Putting away therefore all wickedness, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings.
—1 Peter 2. 1.

My Lord, may I remember that to protect the character of others is to add virtue to my own. Grant that I may see the good and not be looking for the evil. Cause me to know that peace will not abide in deceit or revenge, but may be found in a happy and charitable spirit. Help me to earn thy peace. Amen.
