12Now this is our boast: Our conscience testifies that we have conducted ourselves in the world, and especially in our relations with you, in the holiness and sincerity that are from God. We have done so not according to worldly wisdom but according to God’s grace.

Jesus, please let this be how I conduct myself, especially to my wife, children and friends.  I once was a very manipulative person, and I still can do that sometimes.  Please Lord, no more.  Help me live with the love and sincerity that You give me.  Please Lord, change me and be my guide.  Lord, let all my relationships be guided solely by You.  Help me treat everyone exactly as You would treat them.  *2Corinthians1*
