This Week in Motion Elementary :: Make peace whenever you can.

March series: Throughout scripture, we can see how peace is something near to God’s heart. Even though people chose to break their relationship with God, God made a way to fix that relationship through Jesus. And because we reflect God’s image, making peace with others should be a priority for us as well. When we choose to make peace with others, we’re demonstrating that God’s love can transcend our personal opinions and help us work together in spite of our differences. Choosing peace is a way for God’s family to make an impact in the world.

Make peace whenever you can.
Live in Peace with EveryoneRomans 12:18

Paul wrote in Romans 12:18: “If possible, live in peace with everyone. Do that as much as you can.” This is a big challenge! Do as much as you can to live in peace… with everyone! Paul was stressing how important it is for us to do everything in our power to fix what is broken — and make connections with the people around us. After all, this is what God did for us through Jesus. 

Engage in everyday moments together this week: 

  • Morning time: As your kid starts their day, tell them about a way they make things peaceful. (e.g., their attitude, their words, their hospitality, etc.)
  • Mealtime: At a meal this week, have everyone at the table share this: “Give an example of a time when you had to make peace with someone. Was it hard? How did you feel afterward?”
  • Drive time: While on the go, ask your kid, “What’s something new you’ve discovered how to do or something new you like?”
  • Bedtime: Pray for each other: “God, help us to make peace whenever we can. When we’re not sure what to do, show us what we should do. And help us to have the courage to do it.”
