VerseD: Philippians 4:7

And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:7, ESV

The peace of God comes from regular communication with God: reading the Bible, praying to God, and interacting with His Church.

VerseD: Jeremiah 17:9

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?
Jeremiah 17:9, ESV

If we “look deep within” ourselves to find happiness, we will only be disappointed. Maybe this life will turn out better from “following our hearts,” but ultimately it usually leads us away from Christ and eternal life.
We should expect those outside of Christ to act unwisely and foolishly, but we should be sober-minded and seek His wisdom.

VerseD: Romans 13:10

Love does no wrong to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.
Romans 13:10, ESV

“Does no wrong” does not mean “never causes pain in any way.” Doing no wrong means seeking to do the best for others.
Because Christ first loved us.

VerseD: Ephesians 6:10

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.
Ephesians 6:10, ESV

God empowers us by His Holy Spirit to love and show grace to others, to defend and proclaim His Word, and to withstand persecution, temptations, and troubles.

VerseD: James 3:13

Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom.
James 3:13, ESV

We have truth on our side, but wisdom often dictates grace and compassion win out over blunt statements.
Ask the Holy Spirit to give wisdom in every interaction with others.

VerseD: Proverbs 3:7

Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord , and turn away from evil.
Proverbs 3:7, ESV

We do not know enough about our world or what others are thinking to be right about everything all the time.
Rather, we should avoid thinking so, which is sinful pride, and other evil thoughts and practices that lead and separate us from God.

VerseD: 1 Corinthians 12:25-27

that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another. If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together. Now you are the body of Christ and individually members of it.
1 Corinthians 12:25‭-‬27, ESV

Are we one Body of Christ or still trying to live our separate lives?
The Chrisitian faith is not lived in isolation. We need each other, encourage each other, and cry with each other.
