But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
Cultivating peace within leads to the outpouring of peace between.
Depart from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it
Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called sons of God
If possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with all people.
Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace
So God created human beings in his own image, in the image of God he created them
In your relationships with one another, have the same attitude of mind Christ Jesus had: who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a human being, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death—even death on a cross!
Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.
1. Attend to one or more of the following questions:
2. Begin and end each day with this prayer:
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
And where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master,
Grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled
as to console;
to be understood, as to understand;
to be loved, as to love.
For it is in the giving that we receive,
it is in the pardoning that we are pardoned,
and it is in the dying that we are born to eternal life.
