Inviting people not to fight or lie or slander or falsely accuse, not to dig at each other, not to nit pick, not to antagonize.
We invite people to care and support one another, to empathize with each other.
If it be in your power to live at peace with one another.
To put aside the urges to slander or attack or falsely accuse.
If it is within your power to do so – live at peace with all people.
Think about what you say to other people.
If someone said that to you – how would you respond ?
How would you like / think about if someone else responded to you in that same way ?
If it is within your power to do so then live at peace with all people.
How would you respond if someone responded to you in the same way that you respond to them.
23 Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.
If you have something against someone and you can not say or do something without having to insult or slander or attack someone who you were at one point on good terms with that person. Are you capable of being nice to them like how you use to respond to them when you were once good terms ( without nit picking / back biting / slanderous accusations / false presumptions )
Are you able to reconcile with the ones you love and care for ?
