When people’s lives please the Lord, even their enemies are at peace with them. – Proverbs 16:7 NLT

We are all unique and different from others in many ways. Those differences are what make us attractive to some and irritating to others. It is challenging not to rub somebody the wrong way as you go through life. In spite of our best efforts, people can choose to become our enemies. They oppose us because our differences are not compatible with their unique perspectives or assignments in life.

The realities of difference and the inevitability of conflict create vexing challenges as we look for peace with others. It is very hard to be at peace with yourself when someone is not at peace with you.

Our scripture today brings a gift of hope to us. It promises that our enemies can be brought into a place of peace with us. I believe that, with the Lord’s help, we can obtain favor even with our enemies.
