If we would live in peace…

March 6, 2008

“If we would live in peace, let us make the best constructions of one another’s words and actions.  Charity judgeth the best, and thinks no evil. If words and actions may be construed to a good sense, let us never put a bad construction upon them.  How much hath the peace of Christians been broken by an uncharitable interpretation of words and actions?  As some lay to the charge of others that which they never said; so, by straining men’s words, others lay to their charge that which they never thought.” 

–John Bunyan: Exhortation to Unity and Peace
