Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper. – Jer 29:7

Seek the peace of the city

In the book of Jeremiah 29:7 the people of God are told to seek the peace of the city. The word “peace” is the Hebrew word Shalom which most literally means “all things coming together to find their place and harmony under God’s benevolent and life giving rule.” We can have a role in seeking the peace of the community.
