Live at peace with everyone …

We had a guest speaker at our church in May, and he spoke about the following passage: Romans 12:18 (NIV): “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”


Normally, when I think of this verse, I think about the big issues: respecting other people’s opinions when they differ from yours or being kind to “Weird Uncle Charlie” at family reunions. Maybe even ignoring the mean comments from friends who always love to point out your weaknesses or faults.

However, what do you think family (and friend) dynamics would look like if we took that verse and applied it to the “little things”?



Do you think it’s harder (or easier) to focus on keeping the peace with the big things or the little things?


What is one thing you can do for a friend (or your family) to “live at peace” and let them know you care?
