3 Tips to Survive Life ... 2nd TIP


Peace and War cannot rule simultaneously. Peace quietens War. War crushes Peace.

But, mankind continues to run to war. Self-interest is the motivator.

Too long have I lived among those who hate peace. I am a man of peace; but when they speak they are for war. (Psalm 120:6-7)

War is perilous, indeed destructive to the human spirit, soul and flesh. To dwell where peace is absent blesses immense injury.

Five habits to adopt as a peace maker:

  • Do not be quick to find offense, overlook it.
  • Do not be quick to rise in anger, seek harmony.
  • Listen twice, speak once.
  • Refuse gossip, criticism and fault-finding. These sear the soul of the speaker and the listener alike.
  • Flee impatience for this is a strong enemy to peace.

The heart is the seat of emotions and the driver of response. When a heart is ruled by the Prince of Peace it is barren pickings for a warmonger.

Christians fashion their lives no longer in the likeness of self, but in the likeness of Christ.

TIP 2 ... LET THE PEACE OF CHRIST RULE IN YOU. (Colossians 3:15)

P.S. And, remember Golgotha.
