Sometimes…things spin out of control.
What starts as an insignificant difference of opinion…escalates into an all-out battle.
And people get hurt.
This downward spiral is illustrated in Samson’s statement: “I merely did to them what they did to me.”
Back and forth…each argument more heated than the former.
What is needed is for someone to halt the downward spiral — someone to speak of repentance and forgiveness.
Jesus spoke about being peacemakers. Peacemakers do what needs to be done to stop the spiral.
Then…things can level out. Reason will return…and reconciliation will occur. Healing will take place.
Today…be a peacemaker – stop the downward spiral.
