Sunday's Thought of the Day
"If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him”.
In life there will be disagreements, that is a given. When you find yourself in a situation where you feel you have been wronged or injured, time is not on your side. The worst thing you can do is to sit and brood about it; it will poison your mind and heart and make reconciliation much more difficult, if not impossible. Reach out to the person you are having issues with and discuss your differences in a Christian manner. If you do not do this, in essence you are judging that person, even worse, you are judging without all the facts. Perhaps there is a very simple explanation or circumstance of which you were not aware. After the discussion, and there is reconciliation, I am sure you will feel better, and you have salvaged a relationship. Sisters and brothers, what is the second great commandment? You shall love your neighbor as yourself. With love most, if not all disagreements, can come to a happy ending. Do you love your neighbor? Do you love yourself? Most of all, do you love God? Remember, we are all made in His image and likeness….think about it.
LORD God, You heal all wrongs. I pray I have the courage to be an instrument of Your love and can bring healing where there is pain and disagreement. You created a perfect world and it is only by our imperfection that we cause chaos. Holy Spirit, bring peace to this world, let us reconcile our differences. AMEN
