Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. famously said that trying to solve violence with more violence only multiplies violence. He also said that hate can’t remove hate, only love can do that. The world does not know how to be at peace. We are told to search for satisfaction in a cold can of beer or that if we call this credit agency and pay off all our bills we will have peace or numerous dating websites say they will help you find that mate to live happily ever after with. Yet so many people still don’t have peace. More illnesses have been linked to stress than to any other factor. The Bible says in
John 16:33 –
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
The world will not bring us peace. Our true peace is in Him.
