"Laying down your arms, surrendering, saying you are sorry,
realizing that you have been on the wrong track and
getting ready to start life over again from the ground floor -
that is the only way out of a hole."
- C.S. Lewis
"Therefore if you are presenting your offering at the altar,
and there remember that your brother has something against you,
leave your offering there before the altar and go;
first be reconciled to your brother,
and then come and present your offering."
Lord, make sure that I may lay down all the disputes next to me
and let me reconcile with all those who just might have something against me.
Let me be humble enough to apologize to others let me put all evil thoughts aside. Let me think good in advance regarding all persons, because I want to be peaceable with all persons.
