Getting along with others is vital and here are some pointers. Refuse slander because it?s infectious and only contaminates. Pro 15:18. Pro 26:17-22. A person's mouth must be used for encouragement not destruction. Jas 3:8-12. Eph 4:29. Col 4:6. Lk 4:22. When people do you wrong, don't resort to violence. Physically attacking someone is based upon wrath and such actions never work righteousness. Jas 1:20. Don't be a walking time bomb; because such people are always in trouble and apologizing because of their tempers. For the bible teaches,? wrath rest?s in the bosom of fools?. Eccl 7:9.
Look at the example set by Jesus; He was slandered and suffered many wrongs, yet He didn't repay evil for evil. 1 Pt 2:21-23. Rom 12:17-21. When issues arise, men must settle them honorably. Phil 2:3-5. 1 Thess 5:15. 2 Cor 8:21. Col 3:13. Being friendly toward others cannot hurt, a smile requires a few face muscles while a frown demands more. So if you are feuding with someone and would like to work toward peace, give them a sincere greeting. If the person has the right spirit, he will respond in a positively. If not, you have done what you could. Pro 14:7
