An excerpt from First Light: Women's Daily Devotional& Journal:
James 3: 18
Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.
How can you sow peace in your life and in those around you today?
Hebrews 12: 14
Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord
What efforts do do you need to make to live at peace with others in your life?
We're learning about what it means to be a peacemaker in church. Sometimes, being a peacemaker means you have to confront some thing. Sometimes, being a peacemaker means persection will come. I used to think peace meant to just stand by and be quiet. But that's not what it means at all.
Nobody likes to be persecuted, but there are times when you have to stand up and say something. If you don't, your just as guilty as the people or persons who are causing problems.
