Who among us does not want to live more peacefully? Mondays often jerk us back to the pressures of life that we enjoy a break from on weekends. So how can we carry the peace we have on weekends into our week? The peaceful living we all desire demands living at peace with others. However, it is not natural for us to live this way, because we all have feelings of jealousy, anger, and resentment towards others at times in our lives. It is only through Christ that we can live at peace because it is through his example and love for us that we can understand how to forgive others. The Bible says, “Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.” Today, if you are seeking to live more peacefully, start by following Christ’s example.
“Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.” — Colossians 3:15 NIV
