Here’s your daily dose of what matters most! Jesus Christ has made a covenant of peace with us, helping us to find safety in the wilderness.
And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods.—Ezekiel 34:25
Peace is the precious fruit of a righteous life. It is possible because of the Atonement of the Savior. It is earned through full repentance, for that leads to refreshing forgiveness.—Richard G. Scott
