Our World Today

We all ultimately want peace! Yet there are people who don't, Why? When people finish their jobs they go home to feel safe, because at least there is refuge. In our own neighborhood some don't get along, and why? One would think that if everyone was happy, they would want to have peace. Whether in our neighborhood, city, state or country. Yet there are those who must feel superior, and more in control. Instead of just plain getting along with others. Irregardless of race, religion or nationality. One world, one tribe named humans. This world is everyone's country, is it not? Why not? People fight over land, money, jewels isn't that called jealousy? This is God's world, and it doesn't belong to any of us. God gave His Commandments, and Jesus gave us one. Love one another as I have loved you! Simple, yes! Yet man is so complicated, why? No one should care what race, religion or nationality anyone is. Why? If a person doesn't like someone why not stay away from them. They don't need to know you dislike them, and they shouldn't even care. After all they have their own family, and friends. We all have likes and dislikes! But to want to destroy what God made is a sin. It is a sin to kill yourself, for whatever the reason.

Isn't it easier to love than hate? Think about this Meditate on it, pray about it, and maybe just maybe we'll have a more loving world. I didn't write this to Preach. I wrote it because it is in the Holy Bible. When Jesus was here, he taught people by parable. Taught us the most simple prayer, Our Father! Yet man continues to fuss about things. Money, ownership, countries, we don't own this planet. God does! We are simply His guest and He wants us to be happy, keep the laws, prosper, and enjoy life. Yet man continues to fight over land, countries, religion, and race. Why? We are all one nation, one people, one blood. There are so many parts of the Bible I could quote, but I am just writing what I am inspired to write. People know how to read, if they only want to! We can all help, starting with one person at a time. Love our neighbors, treat all people with respect. Put people before money if a poor person is asking, give him what he needs if only directions to the nearest Mission. Volunteer if you can, help at church. Many churches make things for the poor. Or a Senior Center, remember one day you will be one too! If you are so busy working and have a family teach your children how to help out an older neighbor if only going to the store or rake the leaves and shovel snow.

Poetry by Joyce

Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you;
not as the world giveth, give I unto you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither
let it be afraid.
John 14:27
