Reconciliation & Division Summary Being perfect starts with greeting our enemies (Matthew 5:47-48) and reconciling with those who deeply hurt us (Matthew 5:23-25).

Remember to never divide with anyone ..
War Summary Justice calls us to help the needy (Psalms 82:3-4), but it’s confusing if we should fight or not (Ecclesiastes 3:8).

Churches should order power amongst the leaders (I Corinthians 12:28), ..
