    Earnestly [endeavor] to maintain the oneness of the spirit
    in the uniting bond of peace.
    Eph. 4:3.

    We do everything in our power to maintain peace with our brothers, even when we feel that we have been misunderstood or treated unfairly. (Rom. 12:17, 18)

    An apology can help to repair hurt feelings, but it must be sincere. Peace is especially vital in a marriage. A husband and a wife should not pretend to love each other in public but then use the silent treatment, cruel words, or physical violence to hurt
    each other in private.

    We must also be ready to forgive freely. We forgive by pardoning someone who has offended us and by letting go of our resentment toward him. For our forgiveness to be genuine, we must control our thinking so that we do “not keep account of the injury.”

    (1 Cor. 13:4, 5)

    If we were to harbor resentment or hold a grudge, we would risk permanently damaging our relationship not only with our brother or sister but also with Jehovah.

    Matt. 6:14, 15.

    w17.10 10 ¶14-15
