Peacemakers – James 3:18

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

James 3:18
Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.

What is a peacemaker? Some will say a peacemaker is one who wears a light blue helmet and holds a machine gun. But can you really force peace? Can we really take that mentality and bring it into the Body of Messiah?

Don’t get me wrong. I’m all for unity and peace. I just struggle when I hear someone say it won’t come until we submit to their version of it. For me, I can only tell you a peacemaker is one who tries to bring peace in the midst of disagreement. Agreeing to disagree. You can’t force peace. You just can’t. It takes a willingness on both sides.

A peacemaker is not one who forces or pressures a particular mindset or view. Rather, a peacemaker is one who tries to quiet the storm between two opponents. To not necessarily have the answer but to calm a situation until the one with the answer comes.

So are you a peacemaker? If so, what kind? Do you try to force your peace or do you try to calm a situation down with the anticipation for Yeshua to come and bring the answer?

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
