Be a Peacemaker!

We are called to be peacemakers – we should want to share the peace that is in us with others. Being a peacemaker is hard because it means that we have to lay our own wishes and inclinations aside. Here are some verses to read that I hope help you to think of ways that you can practice and develop your peacemaker skills:
1 Peter 3:9 – Do not do evil if people have done evil to you, but do good instead.
1 Peter 3:10 – Stop saying bad and untrue things about people.
1 Peter 3:11 – Turn away from evil and do good.
1 peter 3:11 – Seek peace and really work for it!
Romans 14:19 – Work at the things that will help other people.
Ephesians 4:26 – Don’t let the sun go down while you are still angry.
Colossians 3:13 – Forgive each other
Colossians 3:14 – Make sure you are loving in your attitude.
Colossians 3:15 – Let the peace of God be first in your heart.
Colossians 3:15 – Be thankful!
