There’s an interesting instruction in the New Testament book of Romans. It reads like this, “If it is possible…live at peace with everyone.” Hmm. You see the problem, right? Most of us would be quick to point out, “it’s not possible.”
This weekend, as part of our ongoing series “Peacemakers” we’re going to explore making peace with difficult people. We’ve all got a few in our lives. Or in our past. So here’s the question. What makes them so difficult? What is it that makes them seemingly fall into the category labeled, “Impossible.”
If you’d like to share your thoughts on that, feel free to use the comment section below. (Some have already done so on Facebook.) Please, no names, and no “selfies.” Just a description of what it is about that OTHER person(s) that makes them so difficult to live at peace with.
And then plan to listen in this Sunday as we take up this very practical matter. How can we be peacemakers in the midst of difficult people? Is it worth it?
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called the children of God. –Jesus
