New Defender's Study Bible Notes

6:7 rather take wrong. This principle is as relevant today as in Paul’s days. Christians ought to love one another, not sue one another! Christians, like unbelievers, do unfortunately get into mundane arguments and disagreements with each other. They should be able to settle such arguments amicably, however, as Christian brothers. If not, they should be willing to accept Christian mediation from disinterested fellow-Christians. Failing this, the more mature Christian should be willing simply to yield to the other, even if he is legally in the right. Above all, they should not take the matter to court, as this damages the testimony of the whole church.
