It Depends on You

If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Romans 12:18 (NIV)

We all have people in our lives we disagree with. It may be over something they have said or done. The problems can be large or small. The situation may not even be your fault.

But the choice for peace can be in your hands. You can choose to live at peace with them. You can choose to not let your pride take control of your actions. You can choose to forgive them. Being at peace depends on you.

God, thank you that I can choose peace. I choose peace. Help me know when peace is in my control. Help me to live at peace with the people I talk to today. Thank you for helping me live in peace today. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
