Blessed Are The Peacemakers, For They Will Be Called Children Of God

Matthew 5:9 - Relevant today, guidance from Jesus as to how Christians should behave in the face of strife, conflict and animosity.

He said a few other things, too, which we as Christians should reflect upon as we react to the turmoil surrounding the Ferguson incident. In getting so caught up in the back and forth finger pointing we sometimes forget that the way we react to sin can also be a sin. It has always been incumbent upon Christians to do the right thing and set a good example. Let's make sure we're not part of the problem and that we aren't allowing ourselves to get sucked into the inflammatory rhetoric and hatred.

Blessed are the peacemakers.
