"Blessed are the peacemakers”
As Aaron is anointed High-priest, he became a foreshadow of Messiah. The one time anointing of Aaron is remembered in Psalms 133 in the following words, Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity! It is like the precious oil on the head, running down on the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down on the collar of his robes! It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion! For there the LORD has commanded the blessing, life forevermore(Psalms 133:1-3). Why did David compare Aaron’s anointing to peace and unity?
It is said that when two man were at odds with each other, Aaron would go to one and said, “Hey, I know that you are having a quarrel with Benny, but wouldn’t you agree that he is a good father to his children?” The other man would then reply, “Oh, that’s for sure; he is a good father to his children!” Then Aaron would go to Benny and say, “Hey do you know what Ruben said about you?”, “I can imagine!” Benny would reply. “He said that you were a good father to your children”. “He did?” Benny would ask surprisingly, to which Aaron then added, “I know that you and him are having issues, but wouldn’t you say that he is an excellent carpenter?” “There is no doubt that whatever my issues are with him, Reuben is an excellent carpenter!” Aaron would then go and bring the precious report to Reuben. The next time Benny and Reuben met each other, they had a positive reference point about each other which helped repair their shattered relationship, all though Aaron’s efforts.
Jewish sages taught that we should emulate Aaron in our efforts to bring peace within our families and communities. Let us learn not to concentrate on what divides us but what unites us; not on what we dislike but what we appreciate about each other; not to merely see each other but see Yeshua, the image of the Father in our brethren.
Didn’t our Master say, "Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called sons of God (Matthew 5:9).
