Luke 2:14  “Glory  to God in the highest, and on earth peace among people with whom he is pleased!” 

This is what the angels sang to the shepherds.  God has the glory and people on earth have peace among them.  When Jesus and His Holy Spirit are in us we have God’s peace in us.  When Jesus and His Holy Spirit are in others they have God’s peace in them.  Our question is how is it we can’t get along with His peace in each of us?  We criticize, we gossip, we judge, we say spiteful things, we disagree over minor things and on and on.  How can we do that if we really allow the peace of God to abide in us and in fellow believers?  The next time we start to do any of those things that would rob someone of God’s peace let’s remember it is His peace we are attacking.  If we can’t do something positive or say something positive to build up our fellow believers let’s keep our mouths shut.  Let us spread God’s peace with all rather than diversion and blame.
