Sometimes even the best of us don’t get along like we should.


I read about an 8-year-old boy from Waterford, Connecticut who saved his sister’s life. Zachary saved his 6-year-old sister, Meghan, when she started choking on a piece of hard candy. Zachary noticed Meghan wasn’t breathing, and gave her the Heimlich maneuver, which he had learned on TV!


But Zachary and his sister weren’t getting along too well when the reporter came to do an article on the rescue. The headline in the paper said, "Waterford Boy, 8, Saves Sister’s Life." But the secondary headline underneath quoted Zachary saying, "I wouldn’t do it again. She’s been a pain this week."


Has anybody been a pain in your life this week? Have you been a pain? Sometimes we are, but God wants us to do everything we can to be peacemakers. The Bible urges us to "help" other people who are not getting along. That word "help" is a strong word with the word picture that means "seize, grab, capture or catch." God want us to do everything we possibly can to help other people get along. We can be like Paul! We can be the glue that helps other people stick together.
