Daily Devotion: Peacemakers
Bible Reading: Matthew 5:1-12
Key Verse: Verse 9 – "Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”
Key Words: Blessed are the peacemakers
We do not become a child of God by being a peacemaker; but we do become known as a child of God by being a peacemaker.
Every Christian is a minister of reconciliation and has the responsibility of bringing harmony where there is conflict. Put another way, Christians are God’s Peace Corp.
Some women go to the hairdresser in order to get “perms.” These perms change the texture of hair from one thing to another. After applying the perm to the hair, professional hairdressers will use neutralizing shampoo to assure that the harsh chemicals don’t do lasting damage.
Christians are called to be peacemakers. A person who has the ministry of reconciliation has been called by God to neutralize harsh situations so that damage caused does not continue.
May God bless those who aid in preventing conflict because the Lord knows they have a full-time job.
What to do:
