This Sunday's speaker at church talked on having peace that surpasses understanding (Philippians 4:6-7). Nowadays people are searching for peace. There are peace congresses, peace conferences, peace pacts, peace deals ... at the global level. There are also many issues about peace even in our own neighborhoods, in our workplaces, in our homes, even in ourselves. We long for peace, we search for peace, we hope for it. But can we really acquire it? The verses we read say that the key to obtaining this peace that surpasses all understanding is not to worry. Instead we have to pray and thank the Lord. This we have to do even (& especially) in the midst of turmoil and other disturbing situations. And we will have that peace, the peace which the world can not give. The peace that everyone needs.
