Can You Imagine the BEST Recipe for Peace?
There are those around each life that demand your peace and replace it with unrest.
The seeking of peace becomes an offense to those poised for war, or to lips pursed to incite battle.
The standing upon judgements is food for the warrior within, and a toolmaker to the restless soul.
The indwelling of personal accusations is a destructive emptying of harmony.
The loss of peace within both body and soul becomes more than humans can bear.
Ships don't sink because of the water around them, but rather the water that gets in them. ~ anon
The indwelling of righteousness cares little to give or take offense, it creates warm outward gazing eyes.
Righteousness is the shading trunk across a soul for peace. It is the pleasing shelter of harmony.
The fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence for ever. (Psalm 32:17)
The indwelling of His righteousness (and not my rights to fight) is how God imagines His perfect recipe for peace.
