Blessed are the peacemakers. Matthew 5:9
If you want God’s blessing, become a peacemaker. Jesus didn’t say, “Blessed are the peace-lovers,” because everyone loves peace. Nor did he say, “Blessed are the peaceable,” who are never disturbed by anything. No, he said, “Blessed are those who work for peace.”
Peacemakers are rare because peace-making is hard work. But it’s worth it. Relationships are always worth restoring.
