Beatitudes Continue...

Matthew 5:9 (NIV)
Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.

I love the Message translation of this verse:
"You're blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That's when you discover who you really are, and your place in God's family."

I want to be a "PEACEMAKER"!

This verse reminded me of a sermon years ago where the Pastor shared the difference between "peacekeepers" and "peacemakers". As I "googled" the topic, I found this web site that helps communicate the difference as I remember the Pastor of my church had done. If you have time to peak, check out THIS SITE for more insight.
