‘If the household is worthy, let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet. ‘ Matthew 10:13-14
We want to bring peace wherever we go when we can. There will be times we have done everything we know to do, but those we are desiring to have peace with just won’t have it. What are we to do?
- Shake it off and keep going to those who want peace.
- Remember the peace we are talking about is
relational peace not circumstantial peace.
- You can’t control the cicumstance and you can’t control what others do or how they respond, but you can control what you do and say.
Prayer: “Heavenly Father, help me to try and live in peace with as many people as possible, but when those I’ve tried don’t want to live in peace with me, please allow Your peace to return to me. Please give me a double portion of Your peace. In Jesus Name, Amen!”
