Blessed are the Peacemakers
Passage: Matthew 5:5–5:16, Jeremiah 29:7
It seems these days that our country is more divided than ever. Partisan politics is the rule in our government. Racial struggles dominate the news. Civil authorities like the police clash with the citizens they are sworn to serve and protect, and those citizens show no respect for those who serve. The rich get richer, and the poor grow poorer. Our once united country appears to be falling apart at the seams.
