Daily Play Call #8
23 So if when you are offering your gift at the altar you there remember that your brother has any [grievance] against you,
24 Leave your gift at the altar and go. First make peace with your brother, and then come back and present your gift.
Matthew 5:23-24 AMPC
Reconcile with each other
Our Head Coach Jesus desires that we reconcile with those we may have harmed or accidentally offended. Notice, how Jesus says that He wants us to leave and first go reconcile or fix the situation with your brother or sister, then come back. Jesus' ministry was reconciliation. Jesus reconciled us back to the Father. He commands of us to reconcile with those who have a grievance with us.
Even if you feel like you weren't wrong it's still good to apologize so the other person isn't offended. Apologizing when you are not wrong requires great humility. Some people may not want to reconcile and that is okay. The Lord sees your heart and that you went and tried to make it right. If the other person doesn't want to forgive then God will deal with them.
God is pleased when we follow His play calls. Reconciling with others is making a big play in the faith!
The Bible is clear on the requirements of anyone who serve the Lord that they MUST be patient and willing to suffer wrong.
24 And the servant of the Lord must not be quarrelsome (fighting and contending). Instead, he must be kindly to everyone and mild-tempered [preserving the bond of peace]; he must be a skilled and suitable teacher, patient and forbearing and willing to suffer wrong.
25 He must correct his opponents with courtesy and gentleness, in the hope that God may grant that they will repent and come to know the Truth [that they will perceive and recognize and become accurately acquainted with and acknowledge it],
2 Timothy 2:24-25 AMPC
