OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I have a sister that is two years younger than me and I have a brother that is three years younger than her.

I couldn’t have been blessed with any better siblings. They’re the best!

But my sister and I went through a stage where we argued over everything. My brother would step in, calm us down and encourage us to get along.

We dubbed him “PMT”: Peace Maker Tim.

We did it to annoy him, to get him to be quiet.

As I read the Word today, “Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God” (Matthew 5:9) I thought about what an honor it is to be known as a child of God, even if people are actually ridiculing you.

I doubt that my brother understood or was thinking about that scripture. I can assure you that my sister and I weren’t.

But the facts remain. He was doing the work of The Lord and we took notice.

And finally, two decades later, God is being glorified.

Keep serving Jesus and He’ll get the glory.
