Sin introduced conflict into the world. The first sin separated man from God. The second sin, Cain's murder of Abel, separated man from man.
A peacemaker will do their very best to walk away from a fight, but even a peacemaker who is pushed into a corner will take an occasional swing.
A certain mountain in
Lord, make me the instrument of Your peace,
Where there is hatred, may I bring love;
Where there is malice, pardon;
Where there is discord, harmony;
Where there is error, truth;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, Your light;
Where there is sadness, may I bring joy.
Oh, Master, may I seek not so much
To be comforted as to comfort,
To be understood as to understand,
To be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive,
It is in losing our lives that we shall find them,
It is in forgiving that we shall be forgiven,
It is in dying that we shall rise up to eternal life.
✞ Go the extra mile to be a peacemaker. You'll find it much more rewarding than the road of a troublemaker.
