Matthew 5:25-26

"Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still with him on the way, or he may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. I tell you the truth, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny."
(NIV)


Hmm... This verse almost seems like it could be found in with the Proverbs. Maybe you could say it this way, "Don't fight those courtroom battles. You might lose! Just settle the matter before it gets that bad." Also, "If you are wrong, just admit it!"

In America, this passage applies quite frequently. We are overrun with lawsuits and lawyers. But on a more personal note. In your everyday affairs, simply do the right thing. If you have wronged someone, make it right. Don't try to get out of it.

People who are like this, who make things right, are the citizens of the Kingdom.
