Bringing peace


[Jesus] said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few.” Luke 10:2a

[Jesus said to them,] “Whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this house!'” Luke 10:5

Do I bring peace with me wherever I go, whatever place I enter? Do I smile, say please and thank you, hold the door for others? Do I make eye contact and greet everyone I meet? Do I stop to help someone in need, listen to someone’s story, comfort someone who is suffering? Do I remember to be grateful for running water, plentiful food, access to education, and all the other gifts that fill my daily life?

How can I bring a bit of the Lord’s peace with me today?
