Daily Thought: Peacemaking is Divine Work

"Now peacemaking is a divine work.  For peace means reconciliation, and God is the author of peace and reconciliation.  Indeed, the very same verb which is used in this beatitude of us it applied by the apostle Paul to what God has done through Christ...It is hardly surprising, therefore, that the particular blessing which is attached to peacemakers is that 'they shall be called sons of God'. For they are seeking to do what their Father has done, loving people with his love, as  Jesus is soon to make explicit." ~ John Stott, The Message of the Sermon on the Mount, p. 50
