Monday, September 3

First make your peace with your brother.—Matt. 5:24.

 

Suppose you learn that a brother was offended by something you said or did. What should you do? Talk with your brother. Note what your objective should be. It is not to cast part of the blame on your brother but to admit your fault and make peace. Being at peace with our fellow worshippers is of utmost importance. Consider Abraham and his nephew Lot. Both men possessed livestock, and their shepherds apparently quarreled about grazing land. Eager to eliminate tensions, Abraham offered Lot first choice of the areas where their respective households would settle. (Gen. 13:1, 2, 5-9) What a good example! Abraham sought peace, not his own interests. Did he lose out because of his generosity? Not at all. Immediately after this incident with Lot, Jehovah promised Abraham great blessings. (Gen. 13:14-17) God will never allow his servants to suffer lasting loss for acting in harmony with divine principles and settling differences in a spirit of love. w16.05 1:11, 12

This is so important to remember. If you have learned you have offended or have been offended by someone it is best to talk to that person right away. There’s no need to talk with other people about it.

 

Making peace with an offended brother test our humility because when you are humble you do not argue to establish your “rights.”  Remember we do not go to the offended one to convince him that we are right or wrong. We go to restore peace.

 

Make we always be peaceful, peace makers, and peace loving.
