yielding pacifies

Ecclesiastes 10

v4

If the spirit of the ruler rise up against thee, leave not thy place; for yielding pacifieth great offences.

Yielding pacifies great offenses. Sometimes when we're in a conflict, we should just yield, even when we think we're right, and especially when it's a conflict against somebody in authority.


From: More Like the Master

By Charles Gab­ri­el, 1906
More like the Master I would ever be,
More of His meekness, more humility;
More zeal to labor, more courage to be true,
More consecration for work He bids me do.

Take Thou my heart, I would be Thine alone;
Take Thou my heart, and make it all Thine own.
Purge me from sin, O Lord, I now implore,
Wash me and keep me Thine forevermore.
