Compromise

We will do well to guard our hearts with all diligence

 

by Derrel Emmerson - October 29, 2014

Compromise is a big principle for progress in human culture. In general, I generally favor trying to find the middle road. However, that can only be done when people agree on the essential principles. People have no potential of compromising when they stand on fundamentally different premises. That is when love always compels us to take a stand on those essential things which we believe endangers others and forbear on the non essentials.

The way we process our conflicts with others determines the capacity we will develop for living a fulfilling life. We will do well when we are engaged in our next conflict to consider the long term benefits and detriments of our actions to our personalities, our relationships and our eternal soul. We will do well to guard our hearts with all diligence that we not become calloused in the effort to be a winner.

Above all else, guard your heart,
for everything you do flows from it.
24 Keep your mouth free of perversity;
keep corrupt talk far from your lips.
Proverbs 4:23-24

“Reason is itself a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all.” G.K. Chesterton Orthodoxy, Chapter III: The Suicide of Thought, 1909

“My anger protected me only for a short time; anger wearies itself out and truth comes in.” C.S. Lewis, Until We have Faces

“There ain’t no use to get angry all the time; everthin’ will come out right in the end. What end? That is the question.” Benedict Burdane, The Croc that Ate My Crocs, Private Publication
