A Hump Day #Peacehug
Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called Children of God.
- Jesus (Matthew 5:9)
To pray for peace is to pray not for one nation, one faction or for "our side," but to pray that the whole world may know the grace, love and mercy of God as shown through the life and death of Jesus the Christ. Today, let our prayers ring out for "the other ones." In the Gaza, in Missouri, in Iraq, in the Ukraine and perhaps most importantly in our own communities, LORD- this we pray...
Christians are supposed to be some kind of different, following the radical teachings of the Prince of Peace. We are commanded to share the Savior and his love with everyone n to transform the world. But if we can't do it with a smile on our face and with love in our hearts then we've got no right to do it at all. Let peace begin with ME.
Because of Jesus,
