About This Message


I can have harmony in my family by…

1.  Avoiding Paybacks

Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Give careful thought to do what is honorable in everyone’s eyes.
Romans 12:17 (CSB)

2.  Pursuing Peace

If possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.   
Romans 12:18 (CSB)

3.  Trusting God

Friends, do not avenge yourselves; instead, leave room for God’s wrath, because it is written, Vengeance belongs to me; I will repay, says the Lord.
Romans 12:19 (CSB)

When the disciples James and John saw this, they said, “Lord, do You want us to call down fire from heaven to consume them?”

4.  Extending Grace

But If your enemy is hungry, feed him. If he is thirsty, give him something to drink. For in so doing you will be heaping fiery coals on his head.
Romans 12:20 (CSB)

5.  Overcoming Evil

Do not be conquered by evil, but conquer evil with good.
Romans 12:17-21 (CSB)

Pursue peace with everyone, and holiness—without it no one will see the Lord.
Hebrews 12:14 (CSB)
