a gentle approach.

Strive for peace with all men, and for the holiness without which no one will see the Lord. Hebrews 12:14

A peaceful day at the lake with treasured company.

Peace is a word used to describe a sense of feeling calm and relaxed.

We may automatically think of ourselves as lying back on a deck chair in the sun with no work to do and no one around to disturb us or of paddling a kayak through the calm waters of a lake all to our own.

Yes, being relaxed is a wonderful thing!

BUT it is more, as a result of, the work of peace – which makes it possible.

Curly, Moe, & Larry, working hard at cruisin’ the lake!

True peace, the kind that the Scripture speaks of, takes a bit of effort on our part.

And that is exactly why God’s Word says……. we need to strive for it!

It’s the responsibility of all people to live in harmony and reconciliation with one another – not just with the people we like, but especially with the people we may not.

Harmony isn’t about everybody being the same, it’s about everybody being different and getting along.

Think of those people, today, who you find difficult to walk alongside.

Strive for reconciliation with those people and watch God display his holiness through you!

hugs n’ blessings to all those striving to live in harmony.
