When we learn to trust in the Lord and grow in love with Him, we will be given peace that passes all understanding. It becomes our anchor in all circumstances. It is not dependent on anyone or anything, but it is pure gift from the Lord who calls us His children.
As we strive to be peaceful, we must expect to encounter people who will be inhospitable, restless and quarrelsome. Jesus tells us that when we encounter such individuals, do not imitate their behaviour (Lk. 10:6). Rather, allow His peace to steer us through life.
Loving Father, You are the source of true peace in our lives. May we reveal that we are Your sons and daughters by this same peace that we radiate to everyone we meet. Amen.
