Run after peace for all I am worth

I should go all out for it. Pursue it no matter what. Peace is from Him but I have to go for it. Don’t say things that hurt others. Cultivate the good in others. Go after the good. Ignore the evil. God approves this and listens to me in this context.

May I cultivate the good. May I go for peace no matter what. May my day fill up with good.

Whoever wants to embrace life and see the day fill up with good, here’s what you do:

Say nothing evil or hurtful;
Snub evil and cultivate good;
run after peace for all you’re worth.
God looks on all this with approval,
listening and responding well to what he’s asked;
But he turns his back on those who do evil things.

1 Peter 3:8-12
