make peace with all of them and love them all no matter how they treat you. If some claim the other is stepping all over you tell them praise God if they say you are afraid of her, with peace tell them simply i fear nothing but God but i do love her, if they say you are kissing up to her say i am just giving her the same love of Christ that I give to you. No matter what they do do not get in between them, if they wanna talk about each other do not talk with them, if they want you on their side, say i love you all and want peace with you all, that is between you guys. repent to them all for letting anything seperate you from the one sister because of circumstances and make amends and tell them you will seek peace with all of them and accept nothing less. just love them all be peaceful with them all, be stepped on whenever needed and praise God for it. If they want to revile each other behind the others back when they revile, you bless them and the one they are reviling etc... they will eventually get the picture that you cant be dragged into it and they will be shamed to bring such things before you and to act such ways in front of you because of Christ in you
Hard texts are nuts (I will not call them cheaters),
Whose shells do keep their kernals from the eaters
Ope then the shells, and you shall have the meat;
They here are brought for you to crack and eat.
A man there was, though some did count him mad,
The more he cast away, the more he had.
He that bestows his goods upon the poor,
Shall have as much again, and ten times more.
He that will kill, must first overcome:
Who live abroad would, first must die at home.
He first by grace must conquered be,
That sin would mortify:
And who that lives would convice me,
Unto himself must die.
The Pilgim's Progress by John Bunyan
