As the scripture says, “If you want to enjoy life and wish to see good times, you must keep from speaking evil and stop telling lies. You must turn away from evil and do good; you must strive for peace with all your heart. 1 Peter 3:10-11

‘ For, “The one who wants to enjoy life and see good days [good–whether apparent or not], Must keep his tongue free from evil and his lips from speaking guile (treachery, deceit). “He must turn away from wickedness and do what is right. He must search for peace [with God, with self, with others] and pursue it eagerly [actively–not merely desiring it].’ 1 PETER 3:10-11

Try to be at peace with everyone, and try to live a holy life, because no one will see the Lord without it. Hebrews 12:14

If you want to enjoy life,  and see good times, stop speaking evil and stop telling lies. If you want peace pursue it with all peace.

Is there any area you need to pursue peace? What does pursuing peace mean to you?

Prayer: “God help me to not speak evil or lie today where I can enjoy life and see good times today!  Thank You!  In Jesus Name, Amen.”
