“All men desire peace, but very few desire those things that make for peace” (Thomas à Kempis).
The writer of Proverbs 15:1 gives us this good advice: “A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger.”
How many arguments could have been avoided this week had we only been willing not to have the last word? How much peace could have been purchased with these three words, “I was wrong”?
God, help me not only to desire peace but also to do what is necessary to walk in peace with You, with my family, and with my friends. Amen.
Remember you are a living letter for someone.
In GOD we Trust!
