Pursue the Things Which Make for Peace

Romans 14:19  

Therefore let us pursue the things which make for peace and the things by which one may edify another.

The apostle Paul addressed disputes over “doubtful things” in Romans 14. These sensitive, controversial or personal issues could be divisive to God’s Church, so Paul encouraged the members in Rome instead to focus on the things that build up the Church and promote peace and unity among the brethren.

For more about the controversies in Romans 14, see “Romans 14: Does It Abolish the Law of Clean and Unclean Meats?” and “Does Romans 14 Prove There Is No Sabbath?” Also, see “The Way of Peace.”
