How Peace Seals in All Other Good Work

“The Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.” – Numbers 6:26

What a beautiful verse, am I right? This verse falls at the end of the priestly blessing commanded by God to Moses for all of His people.

In modern English, you may have heard the entire priestly blessing said this way:

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.

The whole blessing is so beautiful but there’s one aspect right at the end that is especially important for the people of God and to Food for the Hungry (FH) as an organization: peace.

The Rabbinic writings on this passage say that, “One may have prosperity, health, food and drink, but if there is no peace it is all worthless.” Peace is the seal for all other blessings. 

But what is peace?

It would be easy to say that peace is a world without war, but the absence of war is not enough. According to the Rabbinic writings, peace is harmony between conflicting forces.

This is one of the foundational ideas of FH and in fact the second of FH’s Core Values is: “We are relational.”  (Click here to read more about FH’s core values.)

FH believes there are four relationships that when functioning properly bring peace and pull people out of poverty. (Click here to read another blog post on this topic.)

Those relationships are:

  • Relationship with self
  • Relationship with others
  • Relationship with creation
  • Relationship with God

When those relationships are broken, that causes poverty. But whole relationships cause restoration and flourishing. When men and women believe in themselves, work together, use their resources and rely on God, everything falls into perfect harmony.

This is peace!

This is why FH works so hard to restore those relationships. We aim to restore dignity the people in the communities where we work by equipping them to provide for their families, learn new skills and meet their own needs. We lead classes to end domestic violence and create peace within communities. We teach people how to farm their land better and how to reforest for communal benefits. And lastly, but most importantly, it’s why we teach people all around the globe about God. (Click here to read more about our work.)

This peace is the seal on all the other work that FH does.

Come be a part of this blessing with us by giving here, and may you go in peace.
