1 Thessalonians 5:12-13
Now we ask you, brothers and sisters, to acknowledge those who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you. Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other.
Bestowing of a Spirit of Honor and Boldness Among Those Elected
The spirit of offense is heavily empowered in the political arena. This spirit not only makes it more difficult to work together but also to witness to others who don't know the Lord.
Pray that it will be rebuked and replaced with a spirit of grace and integrity; that God will be glorified in the relationships that people develop.
