If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Romans 12:18
That sounds like a stretch, right? Of course there are people in our lives who make it easy to live at peace. But then there are those other people—the ones who make getting along and living at peace feel nearly impossible. Yet still, the Bible urges us to try to live at peace not just with some of the people in our lives but all of the people in our lives. How do we do it? We can focus on what depends on us. We can’t control the behavior of others, but we can choose to do the right thing—the peaceful thing— ourselves.
