The Magnitude of the Need for Getting Along with Others in 1 Peter 3:8
The apostle Peter was no stranger to conflict. He fully understands from experience that whenever we put human beings in close proximity to each other, there are going to be sparks. Yet, he also knows that Almighty God has called us to learn to get along with people. Moved by his own need and the Holy Spirit, Peter writes this very practical portion of his first letter to his fellow battling believers.
