Things to be aware of to have peace

  1. Be aware of diversity: people are not the same. Esau and Jacob were born by the same parent on the same day, but we’re different. The twelve tribes of Israel have their own areas of specialization, and you are also different from your siblings. When you are forcing everybody to be like you is wrong, discover yourself and become yourself. Be aware of the diversity of the nature of people so that you can manage society well because society cannot make progress without peace.

Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same spirit.

There are differences in administrations, but the same Lord

And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God who works all in all.

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

1 Corinthians 12:4–7.

The gift God has given you is for everyone to benefit from it. God has given everyone gifts separately, and for you to enjoy people, you have to understand that people are different from each other. Don’t manipulate people. Understand that people are diverse, know it, and respect it. Don’t force yourself on people; otherwise, peace will disappear.

  1. Walk in love. Love is the foundation for all.

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels and have no charity, I have become as sounding brass as a tinkling cymbal.

Charity suffereth long and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself; it is not puffed up.

1 Corinthians 13:1–4.

Love should be the foundation of all. Love endure. Love gives you the capacity to endure other people. It takes love to take rebuke without being offended.

A brother offended is harder to win than a strong city, and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.

Proverb 18:19.

We need to walk in love. How do we walk in love? Fill our hearts with the word of God, practice, and obey the word of God.

  1. Work on your character. This talks about the fruit of the spirit. The fruit of the spirit is different from the gift of the spirit. The gift you received is the fruit you cultivate. Character is the carrier of charisma. Charisma means (gift of God.”There are many ministries that crashed today because they have only charisma as a gift, but the container is linking. Your character is the container for your charisma. If you lack character, it will be difficult to live at peace with people. Your I.Q. talks about your gift (you are intelligent), but your E.Q. (emotional quotient) asks how you react when corrected.

A brother offended is harder to win than a strong city, and their contentions are like the bars of a castle.

Proverb 18:19.

Once a man is offended by what you want to tell him, it will be more difficult to conquer a city than to influence a brother who is already offended by what you want to tell him. What is a castle? A castle is an expensive house where kings live. The brother will build a strong hole where he won’t be reachable. Let’s work on our character. Are you humble? The Bible says the entrance of your word gives light and understanding to the simple. The word simple there means humble. If you cannot be corrected, you can’t live at peace with people. People look for theology to uphold their ideology when they are wrong. Does your life match the word of God? Let’s work on our character. Character is the carrier of charisma.

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

Meekness and temperance: against such, there is no law.

Galatians 5:22-23.

Without sound character, you can’t have peace.

  1. Put into place a sound management structure. For you to put into place a sound structure, it requires a high level of discipline and commitment. Without strong management, peace in the home, society, and nation will not be possible. The Bible says they came to tempt Jesus and ask, Can anyone divorce? Jesus replied by going to the foundation of the issue. He said Moses allowed you to divorce because of the hardness of your heart, but from the beginning it wasn’t so. He who created them made them male and female. If you have a peaceful male getting married to a peaceful female, they will have a peaceful home. When we have a peaceful family, we will have a peaceful environment, a peaceful society, a peaceful community, a peaceful city, and a peaceful nation. So it starts with the individual putting the structure in place. You don’t have the capacity to change another person, and when you do, you are manipulating them. Put structure in place, have boundaries, be disciplined, and discipline your taste. Let the rules guide you.
