This week’s memory work is Matthew 5:9-10. As we work through the Sermon on the Mount, we come to a blessing to peacemakers. I think most of us would say we are peaceful people, and likely would say we want peace in our families, in our communities, and even in the world in general. Peace is our desire, but is it our way of life? Do we exist to bring about peace within our sphere of influence? Gossip has no part in our lives. Slander, malicious speech, or any other divisive action have no place in the life of a peace – maker. Be a peace maker, not simply a peace lover.
Matthew 5:9-10 (HCSB)
9 The peacemakers are blessed,
for they will be called sons of God.
10 Those who are persecuted for righteousness are blessed,
for the kingdom of heaven is theirs.
Grace to you and peace from God, our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ,
