How to be a Peacemaker

Commenting on Matthew 5:9 Charles Quarels provides this helpful note on being a peacemaker:

The ministry of peacemaking involved putting an end to conflict by refusing to postpone apologies or restitution, refusing to seek revenge, humbly serving one’s enemies, and having love for others that is stronger than their hatred.
