Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind.
--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 your peace. Amen.
