Matthew 5:9 (NASB)
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called Sons of God.
To be a peacemaker one has to understand both points of view and position oneself to reconcile both parties. Christ was a peacemaker as He positioned Himself between a sinful man and a holy God and reconciled us through His atoning sacrifice. His peacemaking exalted Him to become Lord of all. I pray that we'll follow His example and bring peace to warring factions in our own neighborhoods. Amen.
