2 Corinthians 13:11-14
11Finally, brothers, good-by. Aim for perfection, listen to my appeal, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you. 12Greet one another with a holy kiss. 13All the saints send their greetings. 14May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.
Live in peace... That is so hard to do for me. Sometimes people just plain annoy me. I try to mind my own business, but there they are. Part of it is we are of different minds. Sometimes, though, it is amazing to be among a group of people who are all together for the same reason. We look forward to the collective fellowship of the same goal. Peace seems to come much more naturally. So set yourself to the goal of Christ. Find a group to help you reach that goal. Together you will experience the grace of peace.
Who are you at peace with the most? Why do you think that is?
Almighty God, grant us peace that your Kingdom may come. Amen.
