How often do you look for peace throughout your day?
As a mom, I know that once my day has ended that is just what I’m for. Peace…..and a lot of quiet too.
God’s word has a lot to say this Fruit of the Spirit.
Psalm 34:14 ~ We’re to seek and pursue it.
Romans 15:19 ~ We’re to do that which allows it to grow.
Mark 9:50 ~ We’re to be at peace with one another.
What is Peace?
A few definitions are – A state of quiet or tranquility; heavenly rest; harmony.
According to God’s word we see -
Jesus is our Peace ~ Ephesians 2:14
