Matthew 5:9 NKJV

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

Jesus taught a message that became known as the "Sermon on the Mount." A part of that lesson was a passage famously called "The Beatitudes." In the Beatitudes, Jesus said the peacemakers are blessed because they will be called sons of God. When your behavior causes you to be called the son of someone, it is because you remind people of that person. So, that lets us know that God is a person of peace. He is totally against strife and confusion. Psalm 46:9 says that he causes wars to cease. The Lord is a warrior, and fights when it is necessary, but His goal is always peace. Let that be our goal and may our conduct bear that out.
