A rift has formed in your relationship. Perhaps the chasm has been widening for years. Perhaps the plates shifted, as far as you could tell, like a sudden earth quake. How in that instance do you fulfill the requirement to, “if possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all”? (Rom. 12:18) There is the comfort of those important qualifications, “if possible,” and, “so far as it depends on you.” It may be a worn-out truism, but relationships are a two-way street. However, with those qualifications comes the absolute, unconditional object: “with all”. The question remains.
