If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. (Romans 12:18 NKJV)
Holy Spirit, Our antagonist world encourages hostility. We see it everywhere — from the keyboard battles of social media, to angry and biased media commentary, and the antagonism is spilling over into relationships. For many, the crime of disagreeing is perceived as hate. Even different political opinions has ended friendships and divided families! But politics don’t save us… You do and our responsibility as Christians is to share the Good News of Jesus! As tempting as it may be to argue, we don’t win hearts for You by beating people down. While we need to be bold in our convictions, and not succumb to compromise when it comes to evil — we also need to speak and act according to Your Holy Fruits. Please help us to live according to the wisdom of Romans 12:18 — If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
