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.
