Read Hebrews 12:14 (https://bit.ly/2Vog9TC)
You can’t have a fight with yourself; it takes two people, at least, to have an argument. So what would happen if, when conflict arises, we take ourselves out of the fight? The writer of Hebrews tells us to be at peace with everyone. Why should we choose peace? Because God is holy and has called us to be holy, too. Before we knew Christ, we were enemies of God; God had every right to react violently toward us because of our sin. Yet God chose peace when he looked on us with compassion and chose to send Jesus as a sacrifice in our place. Now we’re called friends of God. It’s a paradox, that his ugly death means we have life, but that’s what gives us the ability to be holy and the ability to choose peace when conflict arises. The next time an argument is brewing, will you take a moment to remember what God has done for us – and choose peace?
