Homework

Pray for a peacemaker. Maybe you have a broken relationship and long for peace, but you feel like you’ve exhausted all your options. Take some time this week to pray for a true companion who might be able to help bring reconciliation.

Be a peacemaker. Peacemakers are not easily offended, they aren’t defensive, and they know how to hold their tongue. They are good listeners and can empathize even when they don’t agree.

Be someone’s peacemaker. Maybe you will be able to bring two people together by being a true companion.

Equip yourself for peacemaking. Learn to resolve conflict with grace and peace.

Read or memorize Hebrews 12:14
