Day 2: Peace in the Natural World

  • Scripture Reading: Genesis 1:1-2

Day 3: True Peace from God

Day 4: Peacemakers, not Peace Finders

  • Scripture Reading: James 3:13-18

Day 5: Living Jesus' Legacy of Peace

  • Scripture Reading: Matthew 5:9

  • Reflection: As Jesus calls us blessed peacemakers, consider how you can actively install peace in your daily life. Reflect on the legacy of peace that Jesus left for us to emulate. How can you embody and spread this peace in practical ways today?
