The Peacemakers
By: Rick Boxx
December 11, 2012

Ryan moved his young family to one of the roughest parts of Kansas City and began an urban farming model, turning a blighted area into a productive oasis. Then, one day, over 50 rounds of gunfire erupted outside of Ryan’s home.

Ryan’s young son began having nightmares of his father being gunned down. He was so frightened that Ryan sent an email requesting prayers for his son.

When the Police Captain learned of the email, he and 20 police officers came to visit Ryan’s son. The Captain comforted Ryan’s son by saying, “See all of these men? We’re here to protect your father!”

Jesus taught in Matthew 5:9, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.”

We should praise God for men like these police officers.
