The Lord’s righteousness lives in fertile fields. We know that a field has to be worked in order to produce a crop. If what you are producing is not peaceful, reevaluate what you are doing. The choices we make reveal our core, the seed of who we think we are. Isaiah says the fruit of that righteousness will be peace; its effect will be quietness and confidence forever. Continually work for inner peace God’s way, in righteousness.
(Thoughts from reading seven different versions of Isaiah 32:16-17)
POINT TO PONDER: If you want peace, work for it. What do you believe about attaining inner peace?
