We are blessed to be in a community through CFC Singles for Family and Life. We are even more blessed to be part of the bigger community, CFC FFL. Love and unity are important for our life in community. Peace is very significant amongst us as members because it binds us together.
However, peace is a function of right relationships. We only experience right relationships when there is humility, patience and tolerance. When problem difficulties come, we deal with them urgently. We communicate well through each other. We safeguard our relationships from bitterness, anger and malice. We practice kindness, compassion and forgiveness. Peace is not just the absence of fighting, but refers to good and positive relationships, which bring good for all involved.
Having said these, there are times when peace doesn’t reign. The evil one knows that our relationships are very important, and He will do anything to destroy them. We will occasionally fail in righteousness. We will still encounter difficulties, conflicts and misunderstandings.
But with the desire to grow deeper in making our relationships beautiful, we can truly achieve peace. God wants us to experience the fullness of our life in community through each other as brothers and sisters. It is also our means to be able to move as a united army that will carry out massive and rapid evangelization.
