Finding Peace in a Violent World

Finding Peace in a Violent World

I’ve been reading the newspaper a lot more than I normally do, which has been both good and bad. While I marvel at all the advances in health and science, I’m saddened by all the hatred and violence that surrounds us.

Today I read John 16:33 in the Bible (KJV), which really helped me put some things in perspective. Jesus teaches: “These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.”

Can you really feel peace and cheer despite the state of the world? Can you really find peace in a violent world? This quote seems to think so:



I love that. Inner peace comes from doing what’s right, and even if the world seems to be falling apart around us, we can still feel peace.
