Peaceable – #Write28Days – Day 20

I don’t think that I have ever used the word peaceable. So back to Dictionary.com I went.

Peaceable is an adjective that means inclined or disposed to avoid strife or dissension; not argumentative or hostile.

We need look no further than Romans 12:18 to find what the Bible has to say:

“If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone”

Is it REALLY possible to live at peace with EVERYONE?

I guess the answer depends on ones perspective. If we cultivate an attitude of gratitude and seek to see others as God sees them; God will be faithful to provide us with peace. Now this does not mean that everyone we meet will like us or, dare I say, respect us. What it does mean is that Christ’s love will be evident in our every thought word & deed. Those that are stuck in their worldliness, may be put off by the scent of godliness, but that is for God to handle not us.

You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. Matthew 10:22 NIV

Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. Romans 12:19 NIV

  1. One definition of peaceable I found was “to bring peace whit it”, As believers, we carry the peace of God into every situation. That is part of the scent of godliness, I like that phrase!
