Peacemaker,  Scattered Seeds

Daily Devotion – Blessed are the Peacemakers

Daily Devotion - Blessed are the Peacemakers

Daily Devotion – Blessed are the Peacemakers – There’s a saying among dieters that goes, “If you want to wear a different pair of pants, you have to live a different way.” I guess it’s just another way of saying that you reap what you sow. If you sow sparingly you’ll reap sparingly, and if you sow generously will also reap generously.

With that, we’re wise to remember that sowing can have either a positive impact on your life or a negative one. For example, if you’re sowing discord, don’t be surprised when trouble comes to find you. Discord has a way of destroying relationships and causing division. It might feel good in the moment to loosen your tongue, but the shockwave of repercussion can leave long-term effects.

On the other hand, if you’re sowing peace you’ve begun the work of restoration, unity, and friendship. The Bible tells us,

Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. (Matthew 5:9, KJV)

A great example of a peacemaker is found in 1 Samuel 25:2-42, where we read the story of David and Abigail. Abigail was a woman of good understanding and beauty, but most importantly, she was a peacemaker.

I won’t go through the entire story with you, because I want you to read it yourself, but as you do perhaps you will notice the seeds of peace she so generously sowed by avoiding conflict, working quietly to resolve the problem, and taking action where she could.
