Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. -Matthew 5:9 ESV
A Lifestyle of Peace is a title based on my initial perceptions of what the Christian life is. The mind of Christ is to live a lifestyle of peace. A harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. -James 3:18 (ESV)

This Blog Isn't: I don't want this blog to ever become condemning of high profile Christian leaders, slamming sub-movements within Christianity, gossiping, and in general sowing seeds of discord, disharmony, and disunity. Lord please help us here to always do honor to you, to focus on the positive change we can be and share, and to always remember the central message of Jesus Christ. May the church live out unity as the body of Christ.
Scriptures on Peace: Proverb 12:21 (ESV) Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil, but those who plan peace have joy.
1 Peter 3:9-11 (ESV) Do not repay evil for evil or reviling for reviling, but on the contrary, bless, for to this you were called, that you may obtain a blessing. For “Whoever desires to love life and see good days, let him keep his tongue from evil and his lips from speaking deceit; let him turn away from evil and do good; let him seek peace and pursue it.
Romans 8:6 (ESV) For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.
Psalm 36:5-9 (NIV)
your faithfulness to the skies.
6 Your righteousness is like the highest mountains,
your justice like the great deep.
You, Lord, preserve both people and animals.
7 How priceless is your unfailing love, O God!
People take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
8 They feast on the abundance of your house;
you give them drink from your river of delights.
9 For with you is the fountain of life;
in your light we see light.
