Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.
– Matthew 5:9 (NIV)
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org
To learn how to overlook a situation or to talk it through is a trait that is not lost with God. To be able to listen to another’s perspective then to bridge the difference between the parties is so valuable to God that He connects it to being in His family. This is what God modeled for us in Christ. Jesus brought peace to mankind through His death and resurrection and proclaims His peace through us to a world at war with death and decay.
