mollify

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.” – Matthew 5:9.

Mollify:  to appease, to calm down, to pacify

‘Christians should be personal diplomats, seeking to bring the peace of the Lord to all the relationships around us.  In Acts 9, the church in Jerusalem harbored understandable skepticism and animosity toward Saul of Tarsus, who had persecuted them and now claimed to have been converted.  Barnabas took Saul, brought him to the believers, and helped them accept and love him.

To the extent that it’s possible, as far as it depends on us, we should live peacefully with others (Romans 12:18).  The world longs for peace, but true peace can only be found through the Prince of Peace.  As we know Him, we become His special envoys.’ – today’s Turning Points devo

‘In every person who comes near you, look for what is good and strong; rejoice in it; and, as you can, try to imitate it.’ – John Ruskin

OK, I didn’t take a day off from work for blogging (opps!) but I’ll go and make peace before I put my study cap on for the day :).  Enjoy the Royal Wedding :P.
