Agree when you can

Luke Bible Background

04.10.2017 – New Testament: Luke 12.58–59

By Don Ruhl

One of my teachers in preaching school said, Agree as much as you can, for there will be plenty of times when you will have to disagree. If we set ourselves up to disagree constantly, we may miss an opportunity to fix a conflict, and we will pay the consequences for such living,

“When you go with your adversary to the magistrate, make every effort along the way to settle with him, lest he drag you to the judge, the judge deliver you to the officer, and the officer throw you into prison. I tell you, you shall not depart from there till you have paid the very last mite” (Luke 12.58–59). 

Therefore seek to build an agreeable and cooperative spirit, one that enables you to fix and to build, otherwise, you will simply tear down and when we tear down without building something in its place, we have not accomplished a thing.

Questions:

  • Do you have an agreeable spirit?
  • What is your first reaction to your adversary?
