It takes rare courage to be a peacemaker. Rise to the call! The demon of targeted hate, has tormented Americas far too long. Peacemakers liberate people from the demons of hate and prevent much misery.
All that’s needed for conflict to escalate is for peacemakers to stand by and do nothing. When peace makers are intimidated by fear, anger rages. Peacemakers, it’s time to arise and be bold with kindness!
Peacemakers don’t compromise with evil. They resist it in themselves and help others overcome it as well! They don’t agree with evil, yet they have compassion when people are influenced by it.
Peacemakers (though always needed) are often unwanted, mistreated, and rejected. They often get attacked by both sides, but they press on anyway! It often takes more courage to be a peacemaker than it does to fight.
Peacemakers look for and focus on what people have in common. They listen to and have compassion for both sides. Peacemakers strive to overcome their own anger and unkindness so that they can spread love to others.
Peacemakers are brave enough to consistently interrupt the cycle of pride and hate with kindness and humility. They boldly stand up for right, yet they refuse to hate, berate, or retaliate. They have freed themselves from the demons of hate and pride.
Peacemakers facilitate heart-to-heart connections between hostile people. They are heroes at hearing others and are courageous in showing compassion.
Peacemakers realize that governments are temporary but people are eternal. They respect government, but love people! Peacemakers refuse to let conflict with others escalate into hate.
Let’s admit this. All targeted hate, whether based on political views or skin color, is evil. There’s nothing great about hate! Anybody can be a troublemaker. Be better than that. Be a peacemaker! To turn away from kindness, understanding, and mercy, in order to embrace anger and hate, is to follow a spirit of deception.
The opposite of peace is unkindness, because it causes pain and provokes anger and hostility. Check out my handbook to peace: Off the RACE Track–From Color-Blind to Color-Kind. Thank you.
Hatred is demonic.
In human beings.
God is love.
