Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

Matthew 5:9

What is a peacemaker?

Someone who is actively seeking to reconcile people to God and to one another. 

Jesus wants us to be peacemakers, that means living peacefully among all people with all that is within us.

Today’s society makes this very difficult indeed, but it is not beyond us. If we do our best, then we can’t go wrong, and if we succeed, we shall be called sons of God.

I love how a Rick Ezell, from Lifeway put it:

“Peacemaking is not the Absence of conflict. Peace in the Bible is never to be confused with pacifism.

Avoidance of strife. Never are we instructed to run from conflict. Putting our head in the sand, hoping that the conflict will end, only delays the inevitable.

Appeasement of parties. The “peace at any price” mentality is far from biblical command. I have discovered that you can never make everyone happy all the time.

Accommodation of issues.

The person who glosses over the problems, acting as if everything is alright when it is not is not a peacemaker.

Amen.

We hope today’s devotion has inspired you. We love you guys, and are constantly praying for you. Have a very blessed day.

Love,
