A Peaceful Harvest

I'm Joni Eareckson Tada. Doesn’t it seem like everybody is angry at someone or something? People arguing with the person at the cash register; all these “reality TV shows” with women screaming at each other. We need peace, and the Bible has something to say about this in James chapter 3. It says there that, "Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness." To sow the seed of peace is to press a truth very gently but firmly into the soil of another’s heart. When peace prevails, then that which is right—that is, right living or right-thinking or righteousness—is given room to grow. Today, friend, please join me in sowing peace in the midst of a sinful world that is too cantankerous to discern right from wrong. It’s a hurting world … an angry unsettled one and God is looking for peacemakers to plant a harvest of righteousness that’ll change this world forever.
