Live at Peace

Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone.

(Romans 12:18 NLT)

Even the great apostle realized that in a world of strife it’s not always easy to live at peace. Nevertheless, he encourages us to make it our goal. Jesus pronounced a blessing on peacemakers, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God” (Matthew 5:9 NIV), and the apostle James reminds us, “Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness” (James 3:18). I love that the Bible refers to Jesus as the “Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6, NIV). With His help, we, too, can be peacemakers.

Try to live at peace with everyone.
