Jackie, a character on The Conners television show, recently acknowledged, “The only common denominator in all my failed relationships is me!” Rarely does anyone accept full responsibility for such serious shortcomings in their interactions with others. But sometimes you have to take an honest look in the mirror and make a proper assessment of yourself!
The Bible continually urges us to do the best we can to get along with others, whether it be family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, church members and even our enemies. Relationships can be difficult to maintain, but in order to love God and love people, we need to do the best we can.
“If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”—Romans 12:18.
