Living in Harmony

Why can't we all just get along?  If you watch or read anything in the news you just have to scratch your head sometimes.  So many things seem to be dividing our country.  But scripture like we heard today certainly calls us to get along, and even gives us a roadmap for getting there.

It's easy to live in harmony with people we love and care about.  Grandchildren, mom and dad, friendly neighbors, maybe even the checker at the grocery store or our favorite teller at the bank.

But, living a Christ-centered life calls us to live in harmony with all people.   The driver going too fast through the neighborhood, the salesperson that knocks on your door selling something you don't want or need.   People who believe differently than you and I.  People who have no belief system at all.
