"The blessing of the Almighty is peace." The question to ask ourselves is, "What can I personally do for the sake of peace?" The first step to creating peace is the way we talk to others. The contents of what we say and the tone of voice in which we say it, will be key factors in whether a disagreement or displeasure is expressed with mutual respect or not.
Make peace a high priority. Be fully committed to speaking in ways that are conducive to peace.
(Growth Through Tehillim: Exploring Psalms for Life Transforming Thoughts, p. 77)
