One of our roles is to be peacemakers. Think of the words of Jesus,
(Mat 5:9 KJV) Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.I am still wrestling with the concept of buying people off with rewards. That requires a careful dance, but the principle that we are to be oil on the waters instead of vinegar on baking soda is clear. It may require that we do things we don’t like. It may require humiliation or at least a bit of humility. It is still our path.
So? Be a peacemaker. Leave the agitation for the servants of Satan.
