- Read Matthew 5:9
What is a time in your life that you saw someone “working for peace”?
Peace making does not mean smoothing over things that are wrong just to avoid conflict. The work involved in peace is often challenging and hard, a lot of listening and praying for understanding. But we are rewarded by being called children of God!
- What are opportunities you have to bring peace in a situation around you? It’s a special thing to be called God’s child. We are all created in His image, but He reserves this family distinction or those who’ve asked Jesus to pay the penalty for their sins and to be the King of their lives.
Spend some time reflecting when you made this decision.
