Happiness and Reconciliation

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” Matthew 5:9

 

Conflict can be difficult to avoid. Not even peace protocols and treaties ensure that nations will exist together without rivalries and tensions. Homes and families, which should be places of harmony and understanding, often become like war zones. In our cities, violence takes over in the streets. Even in sports, which should be a source of fun and healthful enjoyment, rivalries get out of hand.

Christians have a high calling: in a world that creates ever deeper rifts in relationships, we are called to build bridges. Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.” We have received the precious ministry of reconciliation. We are called to be ambassadors for Christ, through whom we call others to be reconciled with God (2 Corinthians 5:17-20). Instead of sowing conflict, we must strive for mutual understanding. Instead of pitting one against another, we should encourage alliance and cooperation. Instead of sowing discord, we should work to heal relationships.

Serving as agents of peace, we find happiness in the Lord. And as peacemakers we are recognized as children of God.

 

Loving God, only your grace can restore peace and bring forgiveness. Help us to work against breakdowns in our relationships. Help us to be agents of peace. For Jesus’ sake, Amen.
