Lenten Meditation for Today: Role of a Peacemaker


The role of a peacemaker is significant because of its harvest. The word “righteousness” means “right standing” or “right relationship.” Peacemakers can help restore relationships. No wonder Jesus said, “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God” (Matthew 5:9). His children, relying on His wisdom, become instruments of His peace where it is needed most. God calls us to be difference makers in the world, to heal conflicts in the home, workplace, church or neighborhood.

The apostle James wrote, “The wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure: then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Pacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.” (James 3:17-18)
