This week we’re talking about a very important topic—our relationships. There is nothing that can cause more joy or pain in your life than your relationships. God cares about the quality of your relationships. The Bible is a relationship book. It not only teaches us about how to have a relationship with God, it also shows us how to relate to other people.
The best quality to have in a relationship is peace. Peaceful relationships make life far more pleasant. They also will make your life far more productive. Peace with people doesn’t just happen. You have to choose to think, act and speak in ways that create peace. You have to value peace above conflict. You must realize that developing peace with others is a truly honorable way to live. Look at Proverbs 20:3 (NLT) “Avoiding a fight is a mark of honor; only fools insist on quarreling.”
Do you want to be known as a person of wisdom and honor, or as a foolish person? Wise, honorable people avoid fights. Fools create them. Choose to be honorable and wise by avoiding unnecessary fights!
