Peace. If our world had more peace, we would see less divisions, less disagreement, and less disarray. It can be especially difficult when we see divisions at the highest level. I think anyone who has watched what has been going on in the world over the last year can agree that we could all use a little more peace and unity. Everyone has an opinion and argument with how the country should be run and what can fix all of the problems in the world.
God has called Christians to be peacemakers. We are the ones who should be loving the world and showing the world how to love. Romans 12:18 says, “Do all that you can to live in peace with everyone.” That doesn’t mean we compromise on our beliefs. Instead, we need to stand for truth and live out the Bible so others can see what it really means to be a Christian. We should live in peace with our family, our friends, our church, our neighbors, our communities, and the world.
Pray about ways that you can be a peacemaker in your community and world. Ask God to give you wisdom and knowledge. May you be someone who bridges the gap between Christians and the rest of the world.
