Author of Peace

1 Corinthians 14:33 – “God is not the author of confusion but of peace…”

We know that there is much chaos in our world at present.  God is not the author of this chaos. When we listen to the news each day, it is not usually about peace. Oh, we do see some peaceful demonstrations, but we also see how that may end.  The hatred and violence which are becoming common place is not a trait with which we are born and it is not authored by God. It is a learned behavior. We choose this behavior. We choose what to believe, and what patterns to follow. We choose what values to teach our children. Children learn what they see and hear.

There is an old proverb – “Birds of the feather flock together.” The “birds” we associate with and listen to can either help bring peace or chaos in our lives and to our Nation.

Who will we follow? Will we be a part of the solution to our world’s problems, or will we help create more? We can either spread discord or peace.

What kind of world do we want for our children and grandchildren? Sharing the love of Jesus is the way to bring peace. I choose peace. I hope you will too.
