“Strive for peace with everyone, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord.”
Hebrews 12:14 ESV
Burn No Bridges
My mother used to tell me not to burn my bridges, as these connections are so important in life. And though I have not always obeyed this rule,
I do appreciate that it is a good plan usually. Far too often, I want to go “nuclear” and leave only “ashes”, but that inevitably costs me time, money, effort and friendships. In our self-centered culture, everyone wants to have their own way and listening to others is becoming a lost art; and the result is fewer bridges are built.
