The One Quickest Way to Get to the Root of Peace
Someone paid for your peace judicially. Believe it. Receive it. Keep it.
What is my basis for saying this, you may ask. Well, let’s get to the root of the peace we all yearn for!
Why it is essential to know that peace is yours for the keeping?
The word ‘peace’ is derived from the Old French ‘pais’ through the Latin ‘pax’ whereas in the Greek language, peace is ‘eirene’.
Peace can mean liberty from disturbing occurrences, freedom from war, a state of calmness, tranquility or even an amicable agreement.
In a sense, peace is a state of well-being and being one in piece, being whole. Not being in one piece or not being held together would mean a lack of peace because peace is not to be dictated by our circumstances.
‘Hold your peace’ means being silent and not saying what you intended about something, as in holding your tongue or getting a hold of yourself. So where is this leading to?
The Root of ‘PEACE’
Further research into the Hebrew word, ‘shalom’ shows that the root word is ‘shelem’ – to pay for/ peace offering or ‘shulam’ – to be fully paid.
