Blessed are those who calm the angry, for God will look upon them in favor and call them His children. As children of God, we then will inherit all things, visible and invisible, created by Him and sustained by Him through His Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.”
Always look to quiet the enraged, for they do not know what they do. Their anger is as a fire that consumes everything and everyone around them. Have mercy on them as God has mercy on us, for in their anger they will also burn themselves in the fire.
Better is a day of peace in mourning than a thousand days of celebration in murmuring. God reveals Himself in a whisper than in a storm. Seek peace always, never letting others carry us away into the flames of hell, for God will reward our faithfulness.
Pray always for strength and encouragement to overcome anger with peace. Give ear to God and His voice. He will guide those who seek Him. He will provide for those who love Him. Blessed are the peacemakers.

Excellent! Such timely word.
God is wonderful to be working through us to keep the peace in the world. God bless you, Abe.
As a child, the Lord taught me a valuable lesson in letting Him control my temper. It’s one that has taken much time to overcome but He is faithful. So a couple of years ago when a man literally cussed me out, I was surprised at the strength of God to be able to answer with a soft and appropriate answer. Immediately the situation was diffused. God is so good.
When God’s spirit is involved, all things work for good. God bless you, Donna!
I have often seen myself as being a peacemaker as an end result. My methodology has over the years become more Christ-like as well as Christ’s work (an “I being in the way” sort of thing)
God surely blesses those who follow him and acts as a peacemaker. Blessings!
To be a peacemaker takes courage. When I am at work, very often we meet with resentment, frustration and generally the ‘angry’ will make hurtful comments which the ‘peacemaker’ must strive not to retaliate to. I find that although now I know why I should be a peacemaker (for Jesus, and it is indeed a privilege to know), it is painful to get these uncalled for comments from those who are angry and frustrated over situations they cannot control. So I will try to be merciful and non judgemental and walk away if I can. Amen.
Walking in God’s footsteps takes courage and strength. He certainly looks upon the peacemakers and calls them his offspring. Blessed are you also.
Yes Prince of Peace, come
May that day come soon. Blessings!
Take care of yourself and God bless, Steve.
Thank you brother!
Thank you, Jack. You always write things I can take something for myself from. Bless you, Brother.
Bless you also, Michael.
