Getting Along With Others

Years ago there were riots in the streets of Los Angels due to Rodney King being beaten by police. In the midst of it, King asked, “Can’t we all just get along?”

That question could be asked today.

One of the challenges of life is getting along with people. We are surrounded by people. We have neighbors…we work with people…we go to church with people. We may have even started attending another church due to some conflict with people.

Because we are surrounded by people, we need to get along with people. Psalms 133:1 says, “How wonderful and pleasant it is when brothers live together in harmony!”

God made every person and God wants us to get along with others.

Most of the time, that’s not a challenge but, at times, it can be. If there is conflict between you and someone, go to that person and resolve it. If they are unwilling to talk, at least you have done your part. It is best, if we can all get along.
