“If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.“
I have always appreciated this verse and tried to live by it. But I’ve sometimes felt like a failure at it. Let’s face it: there are situations where no matter what we do, peace seems to evade us. For a long time, though, I missed what Paul wrote in the middle of the verse. The phrase, “as far as it depends on you” helps my perspective stay balanced. In other words, I need to do what I can to bring peace to my relationships, and be in prayer for the rest.
