From my friend Adele’s Missionary Blog:
Peace is a deep disposition of the heart.
It is humility,
an ability to let go of the need to be right
in our own eyes or the eyes of others,
an ability based on the knowledge
that our rightness or wrongness in any issue
is totally irrelevant to God’s love for us
or for our neighbor.
The peace that comes with claiming our self in God
is the foundation of our ability
to carry God’s reconciling love to others
in the most humble places
and humble, everyday ways . . .
