Let us be peacemakers
My opportunity to be a peacemaker came when an insurrection broke out in the country where I was living.
There is great need for peacemakers in families, at school, and at work. No one in the peacemaking business is unemployed today. The tasks of this business may vary, but all lead to spiritual growth.
Of course it would be unwise to appoint ourselves peacemakers and attempt to impose our views on others. Self-will, self-justification, and impatience could easily spoil any such well-meant efforts. The result would be frustration and disappointment. But the outcome is different when we turn to God for guidance and when we strive to follow the direction we receive in prayer. News of wars and terrorism needs to be dealt with through understanding prayer and obedience to God's laws, and here Christian Science can help.
Through a study of Christian Science one begins to learn that the spiritual man—God's perfect child and our true nature —is always at peace because he is inseparable from God, good. Everyone claiming this heritage and listening to God's voice can prove, by his or her obedience to divine law, that peace is possible. Truly obeying involves yielding, giving up reliance on human reactions to determine our handling of conflicts of all kinds, big and small.
