Let peace be our aim in life. Jesus’ commandment is to establish peace with friend and foe. It is easy to be at peace with friends and family, but to be at peace with those who cause strife and harm is very different and trying.
Establishing peace with those outside of your circle supports our pursuit of holiness, emulating Christ and how he practiced loving all mankind, and being at peace with everyone. Christ did not distinguish Christians from non-Christians, rich from poor, or man from woman, Black from White, all deserve to live in peace.
