Living Peaceably

If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. Romans 12:18 NKJV

Anger is an acid that can do more harm to the vessel in which it stands than to anything on which it is poured. Author Unknown

The following is a message from Inspired Faith: 365 Days a Year and is titled: The Promise of Peace. Enjoy!

“Jesus’ own life was anything but peaceful. He was born in a stable after Mary and Joseph’s arduous journey. His family was forced to flee to Egypt when he was an infant because a madman was murdering baby boys. His father died. He became the most celebrated teacher of His country, drawing the wrath of the religious and political establishment. Ultimately, He died on the cross.

But Jesus brought peace: between God and man, peace between estranged family members, and even peace between enemies.

Why don’t we see more evidence of it? As long as humans have the freedom to live for or against God, we will not see peace in full bloom. But the seed is planted. Sprigs and shoots can be seen in the most unlikely places. It is the promise of what is to fully be!”

God of peace, thank You for sending the Prince of Peace to bring hope and promise to the world. Amen.

Do you struggle to find peace on your journey through life?  When or where has peace been easy to find for you?
