For this month we are focusing on peace for our August Bible Reading Challenge. The Scripture reading for today is Matthew 5:1-12. My personal favorite verse from this portion of Scripture is Matthew 5:9 which states "Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God".
The question is are you making peace/seeking peace or are you entertaining or creating hostility? A child of God is seeking peace, creating peace with others and ensuring hostile situations do not occur around them. Like I often joke around with my mentees- I like my peace with a side of quiet. If anything or anyone is disturbing my peace I completely remove myself out of the situation. It is important that you do not allow people, places, and things to disturb your peace. To take it a step further, it is our duty as believers to be peacemakers. Stop perpetuating hate via conversations, social media, subliminal tweets and/or posts. Focus on creating a peaceful environment instead of promoting strife. Represent Christ in every way possible.
For His Glory Only,
