Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.

Romans 14:19

Paul understood the devastating effect on an assembly of those who were puffed up and full of disputes. He knew that such attitudes drive away peace, filling hearts with envy, quarrelling, disquiet and unhappiness.
He pleads with us to strive for peace with each other so that we may all know the spiritual edification that comes when we worship God with hearts in harmony.
