Say the following affirmation every morning and evening

The tongue has the power of life and death Proverbs 18:21


Actions to Self
Do something that makes you feel peaceful.  

As do your peaceful action, meditate on "I am a peaceful person".

Love your neighbor as you love yourself Matthew 22:39


Actions to Others
Do something that brings God's peace to a person you meet every day. 

This can be a peaceful action or it can be saying peaceful words like “May God's peace be with you” or it can be thinking peaceful thoughts like “Heavenly Father I ask You in the name of Jesus to grant this person your peace which surpasses all understanding”.

Do your peaceful actions without expecting anything in return like the good Samaritan.



Examination
Ask yourself the following question every night:
"Was I loving, joyful and peaceful?"

If you were not, make a mental note to do better tomorrow. If you were, make a mental note to continue displaying the fruits of the spirit.
Put on the shoes of the Gospel of peace Ephesians 6



The Good Samaritan
A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho and he was attached by thieves who stripped him of his clothing, wounded him and left him half dead.

A priest passed that way and when he saw the wounded man, he crossed the road and went to other side.  

A Levite also passed by that road and when he looked at him, he also crossed to the other side.

A Samaritan came down that road and when he saw the wounded man, he felt compassion for him. He bound his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them and placed him on his animal. He took him to an inn and took care of him.  

The next morning, before he departed, he took two pence and gave them to the innkeeper and asked him to take care of the wounded man and he would pay him for any extra money he spent when he came back.  (Luke 10:30-35)
