Ephesians 4:(NIV) 3 Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. source
Keeping the peace. Some aspire to keep the peace at all cost, any cost. Some, not so much. Is there a guide? Is there some way for us to know just how far to go, how much to compromise, what kind of compromise is reasonable to keep the peace? I think there is. I think our verse guides us.
When the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD gives you peace in your proposed way to keep the peace, go for it.
Making peace and keeping peace is imperative for us but never at the expense of UNITY with the HOLY SPIRIT. If He is not on board with our plans, by all means, let us jump ship.
