A man named Paul; a very bright man said some very interesting words to ponder.

Go ahead dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you:

  • compassion
  • kindness
  • humility
  • quiet strength
  • discipline
  • even-tempered
  • content with second place
  • quick to forgive an offense
  • wear love

It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it. Isn’t that most descriptive and inviting and worthy to action.

Let the peace of God keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. And cultivate thankfulness. Let the words giving take the lead. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct and direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing your hearts out to God! Let every detail in your lives—words, actions, whatever—be done in the name of the Creator thanking God every step of the way.
Let the peace of God rule… Peace on earth goodwill toward man!

My interpretation of 4 important words:
Peacekeeping – suggests dealing with conflict like many of our soldiers have been deployed to do.
Peacemaking – spiritual experience and daily requirement.

Thankful – acknowledge, expression.
Gratitude – deeper declaration, motivator and for me require God ‘s help.

A grateful heart should lead to peace. We are to be people of peace.

I believe God is able to help us in our humanity. Allow your grateful heart release peace in y/our daily lives.

The peace of God with understanding will guard your heart and mind.

It’s funny with the center and the core of who we are is at peace how we respond to turmoil and confusion from without. Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praises shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when the creator it displaces worry at the center of your life.

Christmas spirit is actually related to the birth of Christ born to exemplify and give peace.
Inward Christmas Peace is necessary to release to others.

The world and many individuals are facing loneliness and stormy days, traumatic events needing peace.    Needing calm.
We need peace but we also need to be so enriched with loving peace that we can give it away daily.

To aid in peace we have to have a more complete thought life. We already think about the things that hurt, negative. We need to add to our thoughts.

Eloquent Paul had more provoking, astonishing, timeless yet encouraging things to say. Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
