    Be about settling matters quickly with the one complaining against you at law.—Matt. 5:25.


    If we have been offended, what
    should we do to resolve the matter peacefully?
    Matthew 18:15

    states: “If your brother commits a sin, go lay bare his fault between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.â€￾While Matthew 18:15-17 applies to sin of a serious nature, in the spirit of the principle stated in verse 15, we should kindly approach the offender privately and try to restore a peaceful relationship with him. The apostle Paul wrote: “Let the sun not set with you in a provoked state, neither allow place for the Devil.â€￾(Eph. 4:26, 27)

    Pursuing peace,
    then, calls for settling difficulties quickly. Why? Because doing so prevents differences from
    festering like an untreated, infected wound. Let us not allow pride, envy, or the attaching of too much importance to material things prevent us from resolving disputes soon after they arise—Jas. 4:1-6.
