When elephants fight, the grass gets trampled. (African parable)
We are often so concerned with our personal struggles that we don’t even think about the effects they may have on others. Physical altercations may affect not only the injured but also their families and friends who have to care for them. Even worse, perhaps, are the emotional scars you may cause those you hurt with slander, lies, or deceit.
Treat others in the same way that you would want them to treat you. (Luke 6:31)
