Today a ceasefire agreement between Israel and Hamas came into effect, hopefully ending the fighting and violence of the last 11 days. The hope is that peace will follow.
Sadly, it is easier to stoke division and hatred than to bring about reconciliation and peace. That is why Jesus once said “blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God”. Matt 5:9 NIV He understood that those who strive for peace in this world are precious and to be treasured. More than that, he understood that they reflect the way of God more than the way of man.
In a divided world where a spiteful word is so easy and can cause so much harm, can you be a peacemaker?
