Blessed are the Peacemakers

Bible Passage: Matthew 5:9

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

Notice, Jesus said “peacemakers”. To me that suggests that we are to do more than hope and pray for peace. We are to actively seek to be at peace with those around us.  Sometimes that means that you and I need to be the ones to make the first effort. Being peacemakers also involves the instruction to love one another. In John 13:35 Jesus said that the evidence will demonstrate to others that we are his followers is the love we show for others. And if we are Jesus’ followers, we will be called the sons and daughters of God.

Blessing: 

May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace.
