Word of the day: Sides
Jesus on Sides: Jesus Christ preached peace to both sides.
Abraham Lincoln on Sides— When asked which side of the Civil War God was on Abraham Lincoln responded:
“My concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.”*
James on Sides— “And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness. What is causing the quarrels and fights among you? Don’t they come from the evil desires at war within you?” (James 3:18–4:1, NLT)
