DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Follow Peace With All Men
In our relationship with others, Christians must bear this fundamental truth in mind that one of the qualifications to see God at the end of our life journey is the ability and grace to follow peace with all men. This means believers are to have peaceful relations as much as possible with their unbelieving neighbours and associates. They should not be the cause of dissension. Unbelievers have no hope of eternal life with God, hence they do not have anything to lose if they are found fighting with people, keeping malice, harbouring hatred toward another person, etc. But believers who have the hope of heaven are the ones that will do everything possible not to allow others to rob them of eternal life.
Point of Emphasis: As much as you can, live peaceably with all men.
Prayer Point: Lord, give me grace not to have any problem with anybody in life.
