Devotional for Sunday Jun 23, 2013:
Peace Treaties of Love
Be sure that no one pays back
wrong for wrong, but always try to do what
is good for each other and for all people.
1 Thessalonians 5:15
Jesus described for his followers what he came to do. He came to build a relationship with people. He came to take away enmity, to take away the strife, to take away the isolation that existed between God and man. Once he bridged that, once he overcame that, he said, “I will call you friends.”
In repairing a relationship, it’s essential to realize that no friendship is perfect, no marriage is perfect, no person is perfect. With the resolve that you are going to make a relationship work, you can develop peace treaties of love and tolerance and harmony to transform a difficult situation into something beautiful.
