Christians have principles but live at peace with everyone. Keeping harmony but not uniformity is a crucial principle for us to live in the world.

Below are ten Bible verses about "peace" to encourage you:

Psalm 34:11-15 Come, my children, listen to me;
    I will teach you the fear of the LORD.
     Whoever of you loves life and desires to see many good days,
     keep your tongue from evil and your lips from telling lies.
    Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.
    The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, and his ears are attentive to their cry;

Proverbs 12:17-22 An honest witness tells the truth, 
but a false witness tells lies.
    The words of the reckless pierce like swords,
    but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
     Truthful lips endure forever,
    but a lying tongue lasts only a moment.
     Deceit is in the hearts of those who plot evil,
    but those who promote peace have joy.
     No harm overtakes the righteous,
    but the wicked have their fill of trouble.
     The LORD detests lying lips,
    but he delights in people who are trustworthy.

Zechariah 8:14-17 This is what the LORD Almighty says: "Just as I had determined to bring disaster on you and showed no pity when your ancestors angered me," says the LORD Almighty, "so now I have determined to do goodagain to Jerusalem and Judah. Do not be afraid.  These are the things you are to do: Speak the truth to each other, and render true and sound judgment in your courts; do not plot evil against each other, and do not love to swear falsely. I hate all this," declares the LORD.

Matthew 5:9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.

Mark 9:50 "Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt among yourselves, and be at peace with each other."

Romans 12:18-21 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord. On the contrary:
"If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
    if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head."
    Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Ephesians 2:13-17 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.
 For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near.

1 Peter 3:10-12   For,
"Whoever would love life
    and see good days
must keep their tongue from evil
    and their lips from deceitful speech.
     They must turn from evil and do good;
    they must seek peace and pursue it.
     For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous
    and his ears are attentive to their prayer,
but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil."

Hebrews 12:14 Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. 

Psalm 133:1-3 How good and pleasant it is
    when God's people live together in unity!
   It is like precious oil poured on the head,
    running down on the beard,
running down on Aaron's beard,
    down on the collar of his robe.
   It is as if the dew of Hermon
    were falling on Mount Zion.
For there the LORD bestows his blessing,
    even life forevermore.
