1 Peter 3:8-11

"Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:
Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing.
For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile:
Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it."
1 Peter 3:8-11

This is good advice. :)  Being all of one mind is hard... but if we talk to each other, and learn about each other, then we'll get closer.  And we'll develop compassion, be able to feel pity, and hopefully be able to treat each other courteously.  I like the whole returning blessings for evil and railing part.  I think that is often what we expect from other people, and even sometimes from God... being mad one day and then asking favors the next.  Let's work on treating others the way we sometimes expect to be treated. :)
Today, let's learn to love life and see good days, by eschewing evil and seeking peace.  Let's not just say it, but do something about it.
