Kaleo Sermon Notes from Sept. 28, No Perfect People Allowed, "Becoming a Peacemaker" Day 3

[Matthew 5:9 ESV] 9 "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.

Traits of Peacemakers Part 1:

1. Peacemakers are not confrontational- In other words, real sons of God who make peace don't act in an argumentative, obnoxious, or belittling manner. They are straightforward in the spirit of love with a heart to see reconciliation in every circumstance and event.

2. Peacemakers are not arrogant and condescending- In other words here, true Christians seeking to be peacemakers don't look down on people they are dealing with. They subject themselves to others as the Scripture commands (Ephesians 5:21, 1 Peter 5:5). God really can't stand a haughty spirit. He gives grace to the lowly.

*Life Point* Lord, if I'm going to be one who makes peace I must do things Your way in humility and not mine in selfishness and pride.
