The 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.
