Wisdom For Each Day – July 25, 2014

God’s will is for us to live at peace with everyone – but sometimes the door to a broken relationship seems closed forever.

If someone rejects us and absolutely refuses to have anything to do with us, we can’t force them to change.  But we can – and should – do everything we can to keep the door open to a possible reconciliation.  We shouldn’t strike back or condemn; instead, we should let them know we still care, and that we hope someday his or her attitude will change.  And if we were at fault – even in small ways – we need to admit it and ask for forgiveness.

If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.

Romans 12:18
