Be a Peacemaker

Build bridges…not walls.

Luke 24:36

He stood in their midst and said to them, “Peace be with you.”

How many times are we tempted to say “I told you so” when we are right and someone else is wrong?

Or how many times have we rubbed it in when someone else is caught red-handed or in some wrong-doing?

Our egos always want to come out on top and win the argument.

The Risen Christ had every reason to be critical of his followers for failing him. They had all abandoned him in his time of need.

But instead of a scolding…Jesus offered them peace.

He extended forgiveness…even before anyone had asked for it.

This is only possible when the ego…or “false self”…is put aside.

Being in right relationship…is more important than being right.

What a different world it would be if we followed this example!

May each of us be a channel of Christ’s peace today.
