ATTENTION: To all the writers and closet writers (I know who you are), this one’s for you. I’m soliciting your insightful, creative and mind-blowing comments.
Doing a quick word search on "pursue peace" at http://www.biblegateway.com turned up three verses in the Amplified version:
Psalm 34:14 Depart from evil and do good; seek, inquire for, and crave peace and pursue (go after) it!”
2 Timothy 2:22 Shun youthful lusts and flee from them, and aim at and pursue righteousness (all that is virtuous and good, right living, conformity to the will of God in thought, word, and deed); [and aim at and pursue] faith, love, [and] peace (harmony and concord with others) in fellowship with all [Christians], who call upon the Lord out of a pure heart.
1 Peter 3:11 Let him turn away from wickedness and shun it, and let him do right. Let him search for peace (harmony; undisturbedness from fears, agitating passions, and moral conflicts) and seek it eagerly. [Do not merely desire peaceful relations with God, with your fellowmen, and with yourself, but pursue, go after them!]
What does “pursue peace” mean to you? How do you do that? Explain.
