Daily D – Psalm 34:14
Psalm 34:14 Turn away from evil and do good. Search for peace, and work to maintain it. (NLT)
Our lives are most often about as peaceful as we want them to be. Since we tend to find what we are looking for, “Search for peace, and work to maintain it.”
We can have peace, or we can win an argument.
We can have peace, or we can have our say.
We can have peace, or we can remind others who is in charge here.
Feel like arguing? How about holding your peace instead?
Feel like you must say something? How about turning your passion into a prayer?
Feel like your authority is being challenged? How about demonstrating the peaceful presence of truth under control?
I will search for peace and work to maintain it.
Our Father, bless us with the peace of your presence at all times and in all things. Empower us to live in peace will all people as far as it depends on us. Amen.

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
