PEACE

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Hebrews 12:14,15

Follow peace with all men…

Hebrews 12:14

Most of the leaders of this world are engaged in settling conflicts. Anyone who is a leader will need to learn the art of peace making. Have you not noticed that many presidents wish to be the ones who bring peace between warring factions? Anyone who is able to bring peace to this world has leadership abilities.

Are you a leader? Do you help to bring peace between enemies? Do you fuel hatred and strife? A leader does not bring more confusion; he brings peace.

Some people are constantly at war. They pick quarrels with almost anyone they interact with. You cannot lead people with whom you constantly fight. You may be wondering why nobody is following you. Would you follow someone who turns around every few minutes and throws a stone at you? Certainly not!

Do you desire to be a leader?  The art of leadership is the art of being at peace with those around you. Do not frighten them with curses. Do not be disturbed by other people’s successes. Do not fight them because they have something you do not have. Be content with such things as you have. Accept other people’s successes and do not fight them.

What is the key to being at peace with others? Accept them as they are. Do not try to change everyone around you. We are only human and we have our mistakes.
