Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers.” This is, perhaps, one of the hardest things to do in life—to be a peacemaker when those around us are troublemakers. To be a unifier when those around us are dividers. Sometimes it means giving no reaction at all to some slight or intentional jab inflicted on us, or meeting negativity head-on with love and positivity.
There will be no end in life of those who will try to disrupt your peace. Recognize these people for what they are, and feel compassion for them, for they—themselves—are in a state of turmoil, and in this moment, simply do not understand the joy, love, and beauty of a life of peace in fellowship with God and all that exists in God.
Pray that they may soon understand and experience this peace. And through your example, show them the ways of love and of God.
Remember this when you are at work or at home, wherever you may be. In every situation, try to be a peacemaker.
