DAY 4: Speak PEACE!
“Now whatever city or town you enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and stay there till you go out. And when you go into a household, greet it. If the household is worthy, let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you.” - Matthew 10:11-13
Today, you are going to SPEAK PEACE to everyone you meet! We’re jumping ahead here a bit, but I think it’s appropriate given Pastor Marc’s message @ NorthGate yesterday.
The Hebrew greeting “Shalom!” literally means, PEACE! Jesus told His disciples to say “Shalom to this house!” to every home they entered. In a day where the 24 hour news cycle streams anxiety, dread and fear to us all day, every day, this will come as a wonderful greeting.
“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” - Luke 6:38
Another huge benefit of doing this is that when you give your peace away, it comes back to you! How many of us need more peace?? I do! So, to everyone you meet and to every home and business you enter today, tell them “Peace to you!”
