Flattery will get you....hurt!!!! Part 2

I want to add a little something to my post on "flattery". You might be wondering why I couldn't remain "friends" with this lady and still share our differences. In my own life I have found that there are people that I just cannot be around because they have such a negative impact on me (more on that topic in a later blog, if God so leads). I have always felt that it was a terrible fault of mine if I couldn't get along and be "friends" with everybody. If we had a disagreement, then I felt it my duty to "fix" it and make everything right. God knows that we cannot "get along" with everybody:

Romans 12:18 (NKJV)
If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.

When I first came across this scripture it jumped off the page of my Bible right at me!!! "If it is possible" know that means??? Sometimes, it isn't possible...and, in that case...we can remain at "peace" with each other...but still share our differences. I've found...and I'm still finding daily...that there is scripture for EVERYTHING that we are going thru. God knows us so well...He knew what we would need to hear and apply to our own lives.
How amazing He is!!!

In His love...and with mine!!!
