paul miller’s melting description of jesus
in love walked among us,

‘…because he holds onto his
time and schedule so lightly,
he doesn’t get irritated at being interrupted.’

oh, for the grace to
‘hold lightly’ today.

[self: take note]
‘be quick to listen,
slow to speak,
and slow to become angry
for man’s anger
does not bring about
the righteous life
that God desires.’

james 1:19-20
