“If you want a happy, good life, keep control of your tongue, and guard your lips from telling lies. Turn away from evil and do good. Try to live in peace even if you must run after it to catch and hold it!” (I Peter 3: 10-11, The Living Bible)
We all certainly want a happy, good life! There may be certain things around us that we can’t control, but we can control the way we approach things. We can take charge of our actions as well as our perspective.
This alertness can do much for us. Our joy can be found as we stay acquainted with what is good and right, as we stay honest and loving. When we express kindness and seek peace with others, we are thinking and behaving like our true selves. And this natural state of being brings comfort and serenity within.
When we stop telling lies, stop giving voice to the devil’s words, and stop taking into our thought the negative and the nasty, we are dwelling in God’s Truth. And His Truth is Love. It is Life triumphant and blessed. Human judgment and opinion, repeating evil or buying into it, isn’t doing us or our world any favors. Instead, let’s turn away from the allure of gossip and cynicism, and let’s instead run after peace like the lifeline that it is!
