5: 9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

Peoplepromote peace and harmony with God andbetween people (6.1), their behavior has the attributes of God, They are the Son of God.

(6.1) In Matthew 5: 21-26,38-48 following teachings. Not angry. Not curse. Reconcile withbrothers and people. To return good for evil, love our enemies.

5:21Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:

5:22But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

5:23Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;

5:24Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.

5:25Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.

5:26Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast paid the uttermost farthing..

5:38Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth:

5:39But I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also.

5:40And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy coat, let him have thy cloak also.

5:41And whosoever shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain.

5:42Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would borrow of thee turn not thou away.

5:43Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy.

5:44But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

5:45That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

5:46For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?

5:47And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?

5:48Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

People being persecuted because ofbelievingin Jesus Christ or beobediencetoGod's Words,,they can have eternal life. We should not compromise forGod's righteousness (7.1) because offear of persecution .

(7.1) In Galatians 1:10, the purpose of our life is to please God rather than man.

1:10For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
