Surprising Qualities of a Peacemaker 

“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” Matthew 5:9

I remember reading about a preacher boy who was in a class in a liberal college and the professor said, “Christians ought never to have any enemies. We ought never to be controversial.” And then he said, “What we need to do is to follow the example of Jesus.”

The boy lifted his hand and said, “If Jesus Christ was so beautifully tactful and diplomatic, how did He manage to get Himself crucified?”

Peace is not appeasement. It is a right relationship with God that leads to a right relationship with self and guides us into right relationships with others. Literally, peace is a fruit of righteousness. It is the righteousness of God ruling and reigning in your heart.

Hebrews 12:14. Are there conflicts which you can resolve by becoming a peacemaker? If so, confidently place your hand in his and bring peace
