My Brother's Keeper is a charge to "Keep Alive" and not to shoot and kill one another. Therefore we answer the question asked by Cain, who killed his brother... Genesis 4:9 "...Am I my brother's keeper?" THE ANSWER IS YES!!!
Even if I disagree with you, or may be upset with you, I now accept the charge to keep you alive in the earth. I fulfill this charge by resisting the urge to react violently towards you. Even if we may fight, it is my charge to keep you alive and me out of jail.
This is a matter of the heart and soul...
- Honor the life and blood of our neighbors
- Settle our differences morally and ethically
- Discourage Instigation to shed blood
- Avoid Confrontation
- Make Peace happen intentionally
- Learn to Forgive one another
Proverbs 19:11 Says, "The discretion of a man defereth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression"
Defer means to postpone;
Discretion means having the ability to show good judgment and the ability to make responsible decisions;
Therefore through a man discretion he takes great pleasure overlooking offenses. It is his joy to uphold and to maintain integreity. His speech and his behavior promotes peace. His thoughts are towards positive solutions and not more problems. He chooses to respond to adversity through wise consultation, rather than reckless reation. He respects the life of his enemies, knowing that God avenges evil and that wrong doers are not innocent and will reap what they sow. He leads by example, so that those who follow can walk in the pathways of peace and prosperity, not a life a crime and violence. A mans discretion will cause him to ponder the path of his own life and always regard the life of his neighbor, who becomes his brother too. In this way, he promotes life and not death; for he is HIS BROTHERS KEEPER.
