I appreciate that “civil” is the adjective used to describe discord. Unfortunately, it seems like the discord in the US, at the moment, is uncivil & hostile.
This challenges me to think about one of Jesus’ beatitudes where He says in Matthew 5:9, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”
If we are genuine followers of Jesus, then let’s endeavor to let our actions & words generate peace rather than hostile division. May we more firmly adhere to following Jesus than letting our flesh facilitate hostile discord 🙂
