path to REAL peace
A man’s wisdom gives him patience;
it is to his glory to overlook an offense.
Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed,

I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him.”
“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you?

but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy.
