Live Peaceable, Part 2

Matthew 5:25-26 KJV
25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison. 26 Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing.

These scriptures are similar to Wednesday's. We should do all in our power to live peaceably with others. When we live in love and show mercy even to our enemies, then our enemies will have less against us.

Even if we are never thrown into a physical prison, we could end up in an emotional prison (which may be worse). When we follow God's commands in love, we will have protection from evil. Live righteously in the first place and then you don't have to worry about offering a sacrifice.
