Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. (Matthew 5:9)
The strife and turmoil in the world is the result of sin, not God. Sin disturbs and destroys peace with God and with others. God is the great Peacemaker and His Son is the Prince of Peace (by whom we have peace with God and with one another, Eph. 2:14-18). It is natural that God’s children “seek peace and pursue it” (1 Pet. 3:11). Today, you be the person who resolves the conflicts of sin. Be forgiving, be merciful, be kind and patient. Show yourself to be a child of God and “as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men” (Rom. 12:18).
