LIVING IN PEACE

Categories: Pastor's Blog

“Turn from all known sin and spend your time in doing good. Try to live in peace with everyone; work hard at it,” Ps. 34:14.
Somehow we often think that peace should come to us with no effort. But David explained that we are to seek and pursue peace in every area of our life. A person who wants peace cannot be argumentative, mean spirited or contentious. Such behavior only adds to disharmony and conflict. Because peaceful relationships come from our efforts at peacemaking, work hard at living in peace with others each day.
God of mercy, create in us the desire to live a life free from sin and its ravaging consequences. Teach us to follow your ways that lead to doing good and bring your peace to our hectic lives. Amen
