Peace Quote of the Day

"So if you are presenting a sacrifice at the altar in the Temple and you suddenly remember that someone has something against you, leave your sacrifice there at the altar. Go and be reconciled to that person. Then come and offer your sacrifice to God." (Jesus, as recorded in Matthew 5:23-24)

Given Jesus' other teachings, e.g., the Parable of the Good Samaritan, it's fairly likely that by "someone" he meant, "anyone," of your own people or another people. And this seems a particularly good word for religious people, who often find ways to be religious, but have broken relationships with others (or perhaps, even worse, to use religion to hurt people).
