But I have calmed and quieted my soul,
    like a weaned child with its mother;
    like a weaned child is my soul within me.—Ps. 131:2.

“David purposes to be stilled and quieted before God. He is not giving God the solution to his problems but is waiting for him to speak. David describes what this humble faith within him looks like. It is like a weaned child, possibly about four or five years old, who walks beside his mother, old enough to be weaned off his mother’s breast but not yet old enough to care for himself, trusting his parent for everything. This is to be the position of the believer, quietly submissive and trusting in God.” – Steven Lawson

As Jesus said we must walk in “all the truth.” (John 16:13) If we do not want to drift away from the truths of God’s Word, we want to maintain a regular personal Bible study daily (a least 15 minutes), attend and prepare for all Christian meetings, and share our truths with others. We also must realize that, at times, we can be mistaken on our understanding of God’s Word. Therefore, our search for the truth requires humility and sometimes an adjustment in our understanding of what is true.

He [Christ] died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.—2 Cor. 5:15.

“Paul ministered for the Corinthians’ sake because he was compelled by the love displayed in Christ’s death. He died to redeem the lost so those for whom he died might live for him. Because this was the purpose of Christ’s death, it became the goal of Paul’s ministry.” – Richard L. Pratt Jr.

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts.—Col. 3:15.

To maintain perfect unity (v. 14) believers are to let the peace of Christ rule in [their] hearts. Rule literally means “to act as umpire.” The Colossians were told earlier not to allow false teachers to “act as umpire against” them (2:18). However, when disputes arise, the believer is to let the peace of Christ make the call. Whatever will lead to peace must be the deciding factor so that peace will be preserved.” – Max Anders
