Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. Matthew 5: 9
Father, you are the greatest of all peacemakers. You made reconciliation with humanity possible by means of great personal sacrifice yet without compromising the truth. Show me how to follow your example today. Help me not to settle for fake peace—the kind that comes when lies are allowed to prevail for the sake of avoiding conflict. Instead, grant me the courage, grace and wisdom to work toward real peace, which values all people and fulfills our need for truth and love.
