>Work to maintain it

>I find innovation inspiring.

I approach pioneering with a sort of fearful sense of engagement and enthusiasm.

this morning i was reminded that there are parts of life that we have to approach and engage that are every bit as important as innovating or pioneering. Every bit as important as inspiring and motivating people to commit their lives to missional living is quite simply the work of maintaining peace.

you can’t ignore or leave behind every person who disturbs the peace.

You have to watch your own attitude, measure carefully your responses and work for peace.

1 Peter 3:8-12

Finally, all of you should be of one mind. Sympathize with each other. Love each other as brothers and sisters.s Be tenderhearted, and keep a humble attitude.9 Don’t repay evil for evil. Don’t retaliate with insults when people insult you. Instead, pay them back with a blessing. That is what God has called you to do, and he will bless you for it.10 For the Scriptures say,

“If you want to enjoy life and see many happy days, keep your tongue from speaking evil and your lips from telling lies. 11 Turn away from evil and do good. Search for peace, and work to maintain it. 12 The eyes of the Lord watch over those who do right, and his ears are open to their prayers. But the Lord turns his face against those who do evil.”s

Peace everyone!
