Habit Three: Peace

In the Gospel of St. Luke, Christ says, "Into whatever house you enter, first say, ‘Peace to this household'."

Though the world may be hostile at times, the Lord tells us, upon entering into any place to say “Peace to this household.” It is not necessary to go with hostility but go with a calm joy and love. We must love those to whom we announce the Good News. We are to radiate a sense of confidence, a sense of joy and a sense of peace. We are not picking a fight or trying to win an argument. If we need to settle a misunderstanding with someone we ought to do so peacefully and with a calm confidence. Because we are confident in the truth we are calm in it. Habit three: Be at peace!
