When Jesus gets angry, He is also sad. The heart of Jesus is grieved by the stony hearts of the scribes and Pharisees.

Is there some part of my own heart that is hardened? Do I make Jesus angry and cause Him grief? How willing am I to name my hard spots and to change?

O loving God, there are so many parts of who I am that need to grow and change. I beg that you heal my complacency. Grant me a hopeful heart that is willing to be softened by Your presence.
