“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God."
In this world of injustice, hurt and conflict, Jesus calls us to be peacemakers.
It is a call to all who would hear. To bring justice where we can, healing to those we have hurt or to those we are able to walk alongside, love in the face of hate and more.
The truth is that it doesn't matter who we are, the powerful, the weak, the injured, the strong; the call is to all of us to join with Jesus, and follow the Way to God.
I ask myself, how do I respond to Jesus' call?
I'm not always happy with the answer.
You ask yourself: Am I responding to Jesus' call?
How will you answer the question?
My prayer, oh Lord, is that I respond positively to your call. To be the person I am meant to be. To follow where you lead and to have the wisdom to be ever fixed on you. Amen.
