Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.
Peacemakers. Just saying the word has a soothing effect. The word means:
- Living in a state of harmony
- Freedom from disorder
- Ending strife and dissension
- Uncontrolled by distraction
Peacemakers. These are people in command of their emotions, calm under fire. They stay composed even in the midst of excitement and danger. Some people like to keep things stirred up; peacemakers keep the waters still.
Peacemakers. The Son of God makes us children of God. Jesus has taken our sin and paid its penalty on the cross. Through him we can have peace with the eternal God. When we have peace with God, we can have peace with others. Are you at war with anyone? Go and make peace.
- Ask God to calm areas of your life where emotions quickly boil.
- Ask God to help you make peace in relationships where the tension lives.
Father, move me to live in a state of harmony. Give me freedom from the disorder and chaos that clouds my soul. Give me the courage and desire to put an end to any dissension I have with others. Help me live uncontrolled by distractions. Keep my focus on Jesus. In his name, I pray. Amen.
