We are the peacemakers

When it comes to our health, there are many areas we can improve our health in besides our physical health.  Today’s blog post is about relational health.  The bible says in Matthew 5:9 (NIV), “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

When you find yourself in an argument with our spouse, a co-worker, family members, children or even strangers, we are called to be peacemakers.  Why? Because we are to follow God’s lead.  God is a peacemaker and has called us to be peacemakers also.  Imagine the amount of stress you don’t feel when you have peace. We should want others to feel the same peace God gives to us.  Sometimes to be the peacemaker, we have to walk away from the situation.  Once everyone has calmed down, we discuss the situation with the party or parties to resolve the issue, if it can be resolved.

If we find it hard to be the peacemaker, we should ask God to show us how to be the peacemaker He has called us to be.
