“…the wise are peace-makers who go on quietly sowing for a harvest of righteousness—in other people and in themselves.” (James 3: 18, JB Phillips New Testament)
Quietly planting seeds of goodness, kindness, and peace is true wisdom. We can bring about a fruitful life and a rewarding one when we begin with right motives. As our heart is united with God, with Love’s higher purpose, we can achieve much. We can help ourselves and others, gently yet powerfully.
This is not the work of one day. It is about living, day by day, doing the best we can to follow a path of compassion and harmony. It means we don’t let ourselves get too distracted by the noise around us, and instead continue to cultivate honest and pure love in ourselves and share that with others.
If we crave peace and want to see it in the world, then we can begin in this moment by recognizing that higher goal and allowing it to govern our experience. We can daily reacquaint ourselves with God, good, and follow a path that feels kind and helpful. We can learn to love what God made—ourselves, others, His heavenly earth—and do our best to honor it, to do what we can to be peacemakers and to see the sweet and healing results of those righteous efforts.
