Today is named PURSUE PEACE because peace is more desirable than conflict. We know that Christ is our peace, and when we pursue peace with those who desire conflict, we bring Christ into the situation. Going after peace can often mean walking away, yet it also means creating a peaceful place in the midst so as to build up others. Seeking peace also means being passionate about loving others. We can’t have peace if we have not love. Papa is seen in us when we pursue peace, let us make sure to leave peace and love in our wake.
