MAY 7 – TOUGH

5/7              James 3:18

18 And those who are peacemakers will plant seeds of peace and reap a harvest of righteousness.

TOUGH

This is a tough call for most of us.  It’s hard to be a peacemaker because we become so invested in personal and societal bias the habit of consulting everyone but the Lord.  Peacemaking always costs us.  It puts us in a precarious position but the rewards of this lifestyle of openness and clarity, genuineness, is huge because we begin the process of forgiveness and peace resulting in joy for the participants.  Become vulnerable, love those around you genuinely and simply help. Seeds of peace result in a society of righteousness and that is a community that has a life like Jesus.  Jesus is Lord.  Transparency is the call.
