The daily news brings stories about people in court over clotheslines and barking dogs. Surely our own common sense could settle these issues without clogging the courts with frivolous matters.
When Moses tried to keep the peace all by himself, his father-in-law suggested a better way.. (Exodus 18:21b-23, AMP)
Now couldn’t we speak truth in kindness to quarrelling neighbours, or spouses, before we all make a spectacle of ourselves in public?
Rather, let our lives lovingly express truth [in all things, speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly]. (Ephesians 4:15a, AMP)
Prayer- Lord, may we speak peace to all, no matter the circumstances. Amen
