Seeking Peace-Give to Others What I Seek

15 Mar

On the Porch

Onisha Ellis

 

Regardless of the religion or philosophy, one premise seems to be consistent: You receive what you give. As an opinionated person, I find it hard to only speak words of peace. I’m not fond of the “every thing is beautiful and perfect” people, because that simply is not real. Life is raw.

I do tend to be one of those people who comes up with explanations for why someone acted poorly or unwisely, to see from their perspective and I have found that can be annoying to others. So what is a person, me, supposed to do?

Examine my heart.  As I seek peace does my life reflect it?

 Proverbs 27: 19

As water reflects the face,
so one’s life reflects the heart

 

 

 

Love: Love in both thoughts and actions is a path to peace.

Joy: Don’t become weary, but remain in joy.

Peace: Peace comes by not giving up on giving.
