    1. IMAGO DEI (Image of God) - Every one of us is an image bearer of god.

    2. Quicker to Listen - Good communicators listen first.

    3. Harvest is the focus - The end goal should be in focus.

    4. Grace + Truth - Keep your conversations filled with grace and truth not one or the other.

    5. Check - Do a heart check on a regular basis, what is hid in there as it comes out one way or the other.

    I agree I found this piece in Gleanings In Paul by A.W. Pink which can be downloaded online in pdf form and I felt this section Instruction In Prayer also addressed the point in referring to Romans 15 : 5... Brother Glen

    The Mercy to Be Sought

    Consider now the mercy sought: that the God of patience and consolation would "grant you to be likeminded
    one to another." As Charles Hodge rightly pointed out, the like-mindedness here "does not signify uniformity of opinion but harmony of feeling." This should be apparent to those who possess no knowledge of the Greek. How can "babes" in Christ be expected to have the same measure of light on spiritual things as mature Christians! No, the apostle’s petition went deeper than that the saints might see eye to eye on every detail—which is neither to be expected nor desired in this life. It was that affection one toward another might obtain, even where difference of opinion upon minor matters
    persisted. Paul requested that quarreling should cease, ill feelings be set aside, patience and forbearance be exercised, and mutual love prevail. He requested that such a state of unity might obtain that
    not withstanding difference of view the saints might enjoy together the delights and advantages of Christian fellowship.
