“Showing Peace-Fruit of the Spirit”

“Showing Peace-Fruit of the Spirit”




In John

14:27 we read “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the

world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be

afraid”.  Peace is the result of

resting in a relationship with God.   Peace is more than an absence of conflict. It

is the tranquil state of a soul that does not fear and is content, trusting

that everything is in God’s hands.  

There are several things we can do to show peace and make a difference

to people in our lives:  1)forgive

someone that has talked about you and let them know you forgive them, 2)smile

at strangers, 3) speak kind words to your family the next time they anger

you.  There are countless other seemingly

small things we can do to promote peace in our lives.  I challenge you to think of 1 thing you can

do now to promote peace in your family. 

Simple acts can have a big impact.
