1 Peter 3:11 NASB “He must turn away from evil and do good;
He must seek peace and pursue it."I know I can't live like that but there are times when I wish I could! At the end of the evening, I take my hearing aids out, there is peace and quiet away from the noise of the day - but I can't hear anything! Today's verse speaks about turning away from evil and doing good, seeking peace and pursuing it! There is a sense of peace when I take them out but that means not hearing the voice of my wife, or my children or even those I run into during my day. All that would be lost if I did leave them out all day. The key is finding peace amid the noise of the world, finding comfort in God's Word while interacting with others. But there's more to do that just turning off the world, we need to be doing good by bringing peace into every situation. A calmness that comes from knowing Jesus Christ and God's Word and living it daily. We can't just take things out but rather bring God's Peace into our lives! Why not share a "peace" of His pie today! peace, tom
