Pursue

Let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.  Romans 14:19

When you are continually living side by side with believers who are making peace then there is not emotional drama, times of offense, and no stomach turning event can sway you from extending His kind compassion to someone else.  Genuine kindness shared together blesses you time after time.  

Now if a question arises as to the motivation behind someone’s actions or words then let us have peaceful patience in listening to the full explaination.  If it so happens that we are the ones who have offended, heartfelt apologies make for peace and forgiveness builds up the body of Christ.

In the body of believers, we are not to cause another believer to stumble.  ‘Whatever you do, do for the glory of God.’ (1 Corinthians 10:31)  Children of God honor each other with peace, encouragement, and mutual support.
