What would happen if, rather than being ‘right,’ we always pursued ‘relationship?’ What if, every time we were tempted to say something that causes division, we said something that brought harmony? As Christians we are to be peacemakers, and heaven knows the world could use a little peace. Our marriages are a wonderful place to begin being peacemakers. “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone” (Romans 12:18).
