“We must all learn to live together as brothers, or we will all perish together as fools.”Martin Luther King, Jr
“Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.”Martin Luther King, Jr
Denying someone your presence is like the ultimate punishment. Isn’t that God’s final judgment, after all? That’s what hell is: the total absence of God’s presence. That’s what you do when you give someone the silent treatment. You are saying to them, “You are not worth a relationship with me.” The gospel, by contrast, sends us into the world to love people as we have been loved, to love people who will sometimes offend us. That means before we resort to ending relationships, we walk the messy road of confrontation.J. D. Greer
Remember, we don’t know someone else’s pain.
Peace that produces goodness is the result of the focused effort by those determined to plant seeds of peace in the midst of conflict!
