It is important in life that we live peaceably with one another and not
allow the stresses of life to make us quarrel or argue with one another.
We are to put on the breastplate of righteousness and love and forgive one
another even as Christ has loved us and forgiven our sins. The Bible
declares in Philippians 2:2-3 “Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded,
having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done
through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other
better than themselves.” (Ephesians 6:14) (Luke 23:34) (Ephesians 4:23-26)
We must remember that the Lord Jesus as our example showed how we are to
treat one another. When He was on the cross dying for the sins of the
world, the Lord Jesus prayed to the Father and said “Forgive them for they
know not what they do.” The Lord did not hold their sin against them, but
He forgave them and that is how we should act towards one another. Be
encouraged to do all you can to have a strife free home and lead your life
by example so that all may see what love and forgiveness truly looks like.
I hope this simple message ministers to your heart to live peaceably with
those around you and do all you can to get along, fellowship together, love
one another, forgive one another and live with peace in your heart just as
God has intended for you.
GETTING ALONG BETTER
Proven Ways To Get Along Better With Everyone
1. Before you say anything to anyone, ask yourself 3 things:
1. Is it true?
2. Is it kind?
3. Is it necessary?
2. Make promises sparingly and keep them faithfully.
3. Never miss the opportunity to compliment or say something encouraging to
4. Refuse to talk negatively about others; don't gossip and don't listen to
5. Have a forgiving view of people. Believe that most people are doing the
best they can.
6. Keep an open mind; discuss, but don't argue. (It is possible to disagree
without being disagreeable.)
7. Forget about counting to 10. Count to 1,000 before doing or saying
anything that could make matters worse.
8. Let your virtues speak for themselves.
9. If someone criticizes you, see if there is any Truth to what they are
saying; if so, make changes. If there is no truth to the criticism, ignore
it and live so that no one will believe the negative remark.
10. Cultivate your sense of humor; laughter is the shortest distance
between two people.
11. Do not seek so much to be consoled, as to console; do not seek so much
to be understood, as to understand; do not seek so much to be loved as to love.
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Hebrews 13:15-16 “By Him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to
God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to His name.
But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God
is well pleased.”
Galatians 6:1-4 “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are
spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering
thyself, lest thou also be tempted. Bear ye one another's burdens, and so
fulfill the law of Christ. For if a man think himself to be something,
when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. But let every man prove his own
work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.”
Galatians 5:22-26 “...the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.
Against such there is no law. And those who are Christ's have crucified the
flesh with its passions and desires. If we live in the Spirit, let us also
walk in the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking one another,
envying one another.”
Philippians 2:3-7 “Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in
lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not
every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the
form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made Himself
of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in
the likeness of men.”
Ephesians 4:23-27 “And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye
put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true
holiness. Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his
neighbour: for we are members one of another. Be ye angry, and sin not: let
not the sun go down upon your wrath: Neither give place to the devil.”
All of these scriptures can be found in the King James Version Bible.
