from Ephesians 4:1-3
…I urge you: Walk as Jesus walked. Live a life worthy of the calling He has graciously extended to you. Be humble. Be gentle. Be patient. Tolerate one another in an atmosphere thick with love. Make every effort to preserve the unity the Spirit has already created, with peace binding you together.
i think if we followed that urging, we would probably live that life that is worthy, as it is, we are proud, angry, impatient and intolerant with people that don’t see things exactly the way we see them. this verse reminded me how quickly i fly off the handle at those who don’t “get it”. when we operate outside of that atmosphere of love, and cease to make the effort to preserve that which the Spirit has created, all we have is chaos. how about some peace?
