Today, more than ever, we have to be proactive and do whatever we can to stand for our relationships and our families. Adversity will always come. Disagreements will happen. But one of the most powerful ways you can strengthen your relationships is by being a peacemaker.
Think about a campfire. It can only burn as long as someone is throwing logs on it. As soon as you stop fueling the fire, eventually, it will go out. Maybe you feel like you have a fire of strife and confusion in your home today or in your relationships. I believe that if you ask God to help you be a peacemaker, if you will stop throwing logs on the fire, He will supernaturally cause that fire to be extinguished.
Peace and unity are so important because we have an enemy who is after this generation. He wants to target our families and relationships and bring division. It's true that you aren't always going to agree with everyone all the time, but if you stay focused on your differences, eventually, there is going to be division. However, if you change your focus and look for the common ground of peace, you can bring harmony into your relationships again.
Remember, the Bible tells us that blessed are the peacemakers. When we dwell together in unity, we honor God and open the door for His hand of blessing in every area of our lives!"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God." (Matthew 5:9, KJV)
