“Happy are those who work for peace; God will call them his children!” (Matthew 5: 9, Good News Translation)
Peace can seem elusive, both personally and in our world. We can feel that we are always looking for it and waiting for the variables to be right, for the stars to align, to be in some special place where gentleness abides.
This verse reminds us of a road to joy. It is by our own activity to promote peace, to work for understanding and harmony, to live as peacemakers, that we naturally gain happiness. We are called God’s children as we act like Him. When we utilize the wisdom, kindness, and powerful Love of God that He gave us, we are proof of His presence and goodness.
And while seeing and feeling peace thoroughly may take some effort on our part, our daily centering—realigning with God’s harmonious control and infinite, unconditional Love—brings a contentment that helps us help others. We can remember that our natural ability and duty is to be a part of the solution, not to perpetuate the problem.
Our light, even when it feels small, is enough to break the darkness, to bring a serenity to our souls and a saving solace to the world.
