Walk In Peace

Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; so drop the matter before a dispute breaks out. Prov 17:14 (NIV) Don’t be eager to start a quarrel with others. Entertaining disagreements to the point of heated arguments releases the floodgates of ongoing conflict. Today’s text challenges us to stop conflict before it starts. It is wise to pull back from the situation, think carefully and decide is the matter worth the risk of losing peace. Instead of reacting, carefully assess the situation. Consider if you are ready to approach the encounter in love and is the other person in a stable mental or emotional condition to have a fruitful conversation? At all cost try to live at peace with others and show the love of Christ in every interaction. This week, make a conscious effort to not let your words be steered by your emotions, but rather Godly discernment. Pray for others and continue to pray for yourself to maintain self-control, even when faced with difficult people, interactions and circumstances. You will be tempted, but don’t fall for the bait. Don’t give the enemy a foothold. Put him under your feet and walk in peace. Let’s go and grow together. ADaubon
