James 3:18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
Dear Friends: How important it is to live in peace to the best of our ability. How crucial is the aspect of a peaceful coexistence at home, at work, and ultimately with our God. In a world of wars and rumors of wars, economic turmoil, financial downturns, devastations in nature, the soul needs an anchor and this anchor is Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Through the anointed word of God and searching Holy scriptures for Godly truths, may these inspiration words bless you and encourage you in your spiritual life.
Life will happen whether we believe in God or not. It will continue to rain on the just and the unjust alike. Scripture says in Hosea 10:12 -
Beloved, if you are at peace in your heart and at peace with God your footing is secure and your way will make for peace in the lives of others, for we cannot sow that which we do not possess. We cannot sow discord among our brethren and expect a happy coexistence. We cannot be party to gossip and strife and not expect upheaval in return. Scripture says inJames 4:16 -
Scripture says in Proverbs 22:8 -
To have a peaceful coexistence we must be merciful to others shortcomings and failures just as Jesus is merciful to our own. To sow in peace and reap in joy, we must be willing to avoid useless confrontations for the sake of always being right. If we are to have peace and joy we must dispense with the critical spirit, or our quickness to judge others. Psalms 126:5 says if we sow in tears we will reap in joy. Assuredly, choosing peace over strife with contentious people, or choosing peace when we have been rejected or abused, mistreated and betrayed, will produce many tears. For the moment it will not seem to be joyful, but ultimately sowing precious seeds of peace will doubtless produce a harvest of joy for scripture says the peacemakers are blessed and will be called the children of God (Matthew 5:9).
Consider the words of inspiration in the following: Psalms 85:8-
The grace of our Lord be with you all.
