How do we live at peace with everyone?
Jesus does not exhort me to get angry, as if this is anger were a good motivator or energy for positive action. My job is to live in peace with everyone.
My mission, given to me by Jesus, is to love. That is it. That should be my day. That should be my motivation. Love should be my passionate focus. Love leads to living in peace.
Paul says when you feel angry, don’t act on it! Don’t hold onto anger and don’t let it motivate you because it easily leads to unwholesome talk and other sins. It gives the devil a foothold in your life.
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone… ‘If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this you will heap burning coals on his head.’ Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. ~Apostle Paul | Romans 12:17-18, 20-21
Anger grieves the Holy Spirit. It harms me and others. Instead of getting angry at people Paul teaches me to,
“Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in the Messiah God forgave you” (Ephesians 4:32).

Leadership the Jesus: A Faith at work series — Looking how to focus your faith at work? | This series of leadership programs focuses on leadership skills that drive the purpose and passion for work as laid out by Jesus and based on sound scripture. We might see faith and work as estranged. It can be frustrating. But, in truth, faith and work should share a crucial aim: to see the unseen at work through the power of the Holy Spirit. Nothing new has been made without faith in God. Nothing unseen has been seen without work. When the force of what we do hits why we do it, we wither, or we flourish. Learn more here.
