Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.

Matthew 5:9

Recovery in Christ calls for us to be peacemakers. We are to make peace in all situations and at all times. Romans 12:18 says, “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.” Being a peacemaker means that we are to do everything possible to make peace in all of our relationships.

Peacemakers and peacekeepers are two completely different concepts. Peacemakers are proactive and recovery oriented. They focus on healing, understanding that they cannot fix situations or people. Peacekeepers are reactive and codependent while they are constantly attempting to fix things they have no control over. Whenever a situation requires amends, it’s usually the peacemakers who don’t hesitate to step up to the task.

Being a maker of peace requires a lot of patience, understanding, and acceptance. In Christ-centered recovery, we learn that people will not always behave the way we will expect or prefer. Sometimes, it’s extremely difficult to get along with people in our daily lives. Christ teaches us the importance of empathy and recognizing our differences. As we become peacemakers, we understand that not everyone is going to agree on everything all of the time, but we are now able to accept and celebrate our differences.

Today’s Prayer

Father God, help me to be a peacemaker in every situation and in every interaction I have with others. Be with me as I work to make peace in a proactive way. Thank you for your Son Jesus, who demonstrated how to be a peacemaker in everything and in every way. Amen.
