Psalm 34:1-14

SEEK PEACE AND PURSUE IT

“Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it” Psalm 34:14, NIV.

When I was an undergraduate student, a Christian roommate who loved to pray around 2.00 am daily would wake up and pray loudly in a manner that disturbs his other two roommates. One of them, after praying about the situation, called this fellow’s attention to the disturbance. Instead of feeling hurt and offended, he apologized. After that time, he either leaves the room for a corner outside the room or prays silently. What might have developed into grudges became an evidence of good will instead.
God wants us to live in peace with others and so we must do our best to ensure that peace reigns where ever we are found. A child of God, in addition to this, must keep his/her tongue from evil and lying. These other virtues show that seeking peace is as important as seeking holiness. None must be compromised for the other. Whenever there is tension between holiness and peace, we have to resort to God in prayer. Controlling our tongues is central to living peaceably with others. Deceit and lying or any form of evil must never be found with us. Are you guilty of lying or evil speaking? Turn a new leaf today and ask for forgiveness.

Birthday Blessing: “… The peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:7.

RBT Passage: Nehemiah 8-10

“The hope of a secure and livable world lies with discipline nonconformists who are dedicated to justice and peace and brotherhood”. – Martin Luther King Jr.
