ARE WE PEACEMAKERS?

 
Matthew 5:9


"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God." NIV


"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God." KJV


God's children are peacemakers, full of wisdom, and not easily offended. If they are offended, they are quick to reconcile with their offenders. Children of God will make the effort to promote harmony between those who are in conflict with each other. Most of all, they will work to bring others in tune with God. The natural result of doing these things is the honor of being called His children. Are we peacemakers? If we are, then we are His children.


Heavenly Father, You know we live in a world where there is strife, resentment, turmoil, and hatred. We need your mercy for our part in these things and we need your grace to promote harmony and bring other to You. Help us to glorify You by being Your children. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
