“Do your best to live in peace with everyone.”-Romans 12:18
“Try to live in peace with all people and try to live free from sin. Anyone whose life is not holy will never see the Lord.”-Hebrews 12:14
Have you every sat by the water’s edge of a river on a calm sunny day? Or by the quiet lakeside? There is something that is peaceful when the water is just flowing calmly downstream. If you’re lucky and it’s truly quiet around you, you might enjoy some birds flying by or ducks on the pond. Maybe a couple squirrels scurrying about here and there. The serenity that comes when nature is working together in peace as God created can be wonderful.
That peace found in nature should also come as humans live together in this world. Just like God created nature He created man and He asks us to make every effort to make peace with those around us. No, we can’t make peace with the entire world, but we can start in our homes, our jobs, even our churches. Matthew 5:22-24 warns us about stirring trouble with those around us. If we have a grievance toward someone we need to solve it with them and not gossip spreading their faults to everyone.
It won’t be easy with some people and that’s when you just smile, acknowledge them when they talk to you and then carry on with your business. You don’t have to be best friends you just have to make peace. Step up to the plate and rise above the pettiness and back stabbing of the world. Your actions and words will show them that God is living in you and you don’t want to hurt them.
