The focus was on the importance of restoration in our interpersonal relationships – whether with family, friends, loved ones, or whomever it might be. The importance of ‘making peace’ by coming to one another with love and humility instead of doing the opposite with avoidance or combativeness.
You may have heard it said that to achieve true peace you have to die to yourself. As part of the message we were urged to die to ourselves and put away the ‘mine’ mentality which can become so easy to adopt, even if you don’t think you’re doing it.
That was a ‘light bulb’ moment.
Do you have a person in your life who you are in conflict with right now? Is there someone you need to ask for forgiveness? Is there someone you need to forgive? Have you been wanting to make things right with someone but been hesitant to do so because of fear, pride, or something else?
The time to do that is now. Don’t wait another day. Don’t wait until tomorrow to reach out. Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed. Don’t let any more time go by before you decide to let love be your guide (Ephesians 5:1-2) and do what you already know is the right thing to do.
Ask someone for forgiveness. Forgive someone. (Colossians 3:13) Whatever it might be, make things right with that person you’re thinking about right now.
Be a peacemaker 🙂
Have a great day everyone.
