Be the Peacemaker

We have such a challenge to be peacemakers. In every situation, “as far as it depends on you, be at peace with everyone.” (Romans 12:15) Wow! Does the Scripture really mean everyone? What about those who treat me poorly? What about those people I don’t like? As much as it depends on you, find ways to not be harmed by those people, but also live in peace with them.

Dr. David Hawkins is the director of the Marriage Recover Center where he counsels couples in distress. He is the author of over 30 books, including Dealing With the CrazyMakers in Your Life90 Days to a Fantastic Marriage, and When Pleasing Others is Hurting You. Dr. Hawkins grew up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and lives with his wife on the South Puget Sound where he enjoys sailing, biking, and skiing. He has active practices in two Washington cities. You can also find Dr. Hawkins on Facebook and Twitter
