#LIGHTtheWORLD: Day 23 in the Pacific – Jesus Was a Peacemaker and You Can Be One Too

When children are born into this world they come from Heaven with a sense of natural love, happiness, and forgiveness. It is as an inherent part of their beings and like the character of the Saviour, Jesus Christ.

Young children are innocent before God and frequently serve as natural peacemakers, easily forgiving and smiling naturally and brightly in the surroundings of their lives. They, like the Saviour of all mankind, exemplify peace and happiness.

At this Christmas season, each of us can choose to become peacemakers in the lives of those we meet and those who surround us, helping to lift the daily burdens of life which they carry.
