Peacemaking

A kind answer soothes angry feelings, but harsh words stir them up. ~ Proverbs 15:1 (CEV)

You’re blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That’s when you discover who you really are, and your place in God’s family. ~ Matthew 5:9 (MSG) 

KEY IDEA:
We're at our best when we focus on creating cooperation rather than escalating conflict.
PRAYER:
Lord, you are the Prince of Peace and you have brought incredible peace into my life. But I still react harshly when people treat me poorly. Give me the heart of a peacemaker and the practical wisdom to know when and how to create cooperation. Because I'm a follower of you, Jesus, I'm going to live the life of a peacemaker. Amen.
