Did you have a role in your family?
I was the peacemaker.
I’ve never outgrown it.
In an effort to “keep the peace” I have downplayed, ignored, and avoided. I believed the mantra, “Peace at any price.”

And it’s way to high a price.
Sometimes it takes “wrestling” with the issue to find the blessing. Jacob learned that lesson (you’ll find the story in Genesis 32:22-32).
I don’t know about you, but I’m not finding much peace or unity these days.
I see a lot of taking sides.
