Beatitudes 7... Peacemakers
Bless-ed well, beyond all expectation,
are those who put their own needs second best,
the folk who fill the gap of mediation,
peacemakers who, with patience, time invest.
For why should they subject themselves to trauma?
They even may experience some pain!
Shall generous spirits know the sting of venom,
be harmed when only peace had been their aim?
Called to the role of calming stormy seas,
sons of the most high God they shall be known.
Of this be sure, they do it not to please...
God draws them close to Him, beside the throne.
Quote: Matthew 5:9
