OUR PUBLIC CHRISTIAN INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS MATTER TO GOD

Most people just hate to “give in” when they know they’re right about an issue. Our self righteousness and even our pride provokes an answer. We can always excuse ourselves and justify our actions on that basis alone. But the Lord has another priority higher than our self interest and vindication. To see what He means try looking behind and deeper into 1 Cor. 6:7.  “The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you have been completely defeated already. WHY NOT RATHER BE WRONGED? WHY NOT RATHER BE CHEATED?”  Our impulse here is usually to evade our underlying motives for such actions and proceed to cling to our “rights” instead of His interests.
