10443204_mThe envy of the Pharisees makes them hot and angry at the Lord.  They react out of fear and criticize him.  Anger is often an expression of fear.

When I react in anger, may I have the courage and discipline to wait and respond .  In this waiting may I be open to the Spirit, who casts out fear.

Lord Jesus, breath your Spirit on me and into me.  May your divine presence transform my reaction to a response in love.
