Read James 3:18
Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness. James 3:18

The Christian life is a life of sowing and reaping. For that matter, every life is a life of sowing and reaping, and we reap just what we sow (see Gal. 6:7– 8). If we obey God’s wisdom, we sow righteousness, not sin; and peace, not war. The life we live enables the Lord to bring righteousness and peace into the lives of others. What we are is what we live, and what we live is what we sow. It is a serious thing to be a troublemaker in God’s family. One of the sins that God hates is that of sowing “dissension among brothers” (see Prov. 6:16–19).

Lot followed the world’s wisdom and brought trouble to the camp of Abraham, but Abraham followed God’s wisdom and brought peace. Abraham’s decision, in the wisdom of God, led to blessings for his own household and ultimately for the whole world (see Gen. 13). “Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man who gains understanding” (Prov. 3:13).

Something to Ponder
Who is the best peacemaker you know? What can you learn from that person to become a better peacemaker yourself?
