hearts split apart
"Do not let the sun go down on your anger" Ephesians 4:26
Conflicts between friends should not be permitted to continue
overnight. Scriptures say we should not let the sun go down on
our anger. Why? Because there may not be another day to heal the
wound, and fix the broken relationship.
"But it was not my fault," you say. Noble souls, inspired by the
love of Christ, must not look for blame, nor argue who should
first seek restoration. If it was not your fault--then you are
the better person to begin the reconciliation. It is Christlike
for the one who is not to blame, to take the first step toward
the healing of the breach. That is the way He did, and always
does it, with us.
Do not delay any longer. Is the sun close to setting? Before the
evening shadows, be reconciled with your friend. Let not the
stars look down on two hearts split
apart by anger or misunderstanding.
