Jonah 1:1-3 (NIV) The word of the Lord came to Jonah son of Amittai: “Go to the great city of Nineveh and preach against it, because its wickedness has come up before me.” But Jonah ran away from the Lord and headed for Tarshish. He went down to Joppa, where he found a ship bound for that port. After paying the fare, he went aboard and sailed for Tarshish to flee from the Lord.
1. Harmony ≠ Health
Romans 12:18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
2. Disagreement ≠ Disrespect
3. Peace keeping ≠ Peace making
By definition, a peacemaker does not avoid conflict, but approaches conflict.
