quotes tagged with 'agreement'

If you come at me with your fists doubled, I think I can promise you that mine will double as fast as yours; but if you come to me and say, 'let us sit down and take counsel together, and, if we differ from each other, understand why it is that we differ, just what the points at issue are,' we will presently find that we are not so far apart after all, that the points on which we differ are few and the points on which we agree are many, and that if we only have the patience and the candor, and the desire to get together, we will get together.

Church members commit to do many things. We agree to serve one another, to mourn with those that mourn, to comfort those that stand in need of comfort. We promise to visit each other. We make covenants. We agree to share the gospel and do vicarious work for the dead. And just like that incident in the car so many years ago, we sometimes fail to do what we have agreed to do.

Our justifications are many. We say we will do it later. We have something more important to do right now. We donít feel well or we donít feel qualified or we donít want to be fanatical about it

We are more inclined to hate one another for points on which we differ, than to love one another for points on which we agree.
