Be A Peacemaker

James 3:18
Our planet is not a peaceful place. It is painfully obvious to everyone on the planet that peace is rare these days—and not just between nations. There are innumerable wars going on between individuals, within families, in business, and in government. Interestingly, the Bible puts the responsibility for peace in the world on individuals: “If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men” (Romans 12:18). Hebrews tells us to “pursue peace with all people.” Obviously, if every individual purposed to live in peace, then nations could live in peace as well. Today, try to create peace wherever you go. Be a peacemaker, befitting a son or daughter of God. The peacemakers are those who are at peace with God and who show that they are truly children of God by striving to use every opportunity open to them to affect reconciliation between others.
