We are all so quick to take offense at words that are spoken. Yet, we do not wait to hear what the speaker has to say. Christians can be some of the most arrogant and judgmental people. Our leaders can lead us astray by making things of this earth more important than the things of God. If our goal is finding peace and reconciliation on this Earth, our goal is futile. That was not a promise of God. If our goal is to find reconciliation with God, peace will come through that reconciliation.
