Peace: Day 6

If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all.
Romans 12:18 NRSV


Inner peace is just that—yours alone. But peace is also an obligation of community. It does not thrive in the isolation of personal privacy. If you have peace, you are called to bear peace and live peaceably with others. Imagine a world in which those who know peace spread it with spiritual passion like a contagion. It is impossible to go through grief and survive it without sharing the encouragement of peace with others at the end of the journey.


God, you ask those who receive your peace to live in peace with others. I am grateful that you have blessed me with peace once again. May I be an agent of peace in your name. Amen.


I will be a servant of peace in the world.
