People Need Peace

Romans 12:17-18 (NIV)

17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.

*At the end of the day, we decide how we plan to handle situations and how much we will let others effect us. There is no harm in reducing the amount of drama you choose to deal with, loving from a distance, or in an even greater capacity - adding peace to a situation when issues arise. God may even tell you to excuse yourself, but the idea is to come back and show love. When you can drop the attitude, and love in spite of, you have officially overcome human nature. Human nature wants you to be rude, smart mouth, cut people off, or assume everyone has a problem except you. Let's not think evil, seek vengeance, or assume what we haven't bothered to investigate and try to understand. Instead, let's ask God how to live in peace with all people and do the best we can to maintain that peace.
