Capsule for the Day
We live in a world that craves for peace. A world that wants peace but would have nothing to do with the Prince of Peace. A world that rejects God but wants His gifts. How foolishly we reason? We can't have our cake and eat it too, can we? We can't reject God and expect to have peace, can we?
Let's put it this way, we are created in the image and likeness of God. This God is Father and Father means founder, source, origin. Now, He is the founder not just of our lives, but also the founder of all lives, all gifts, all virtues and all qualities. He is the source of peace. He is peace.
Rejecting God inadvertently means rejecting peace. For us to have peace, we need to accept and have God. It is as simple as 2+2=4. The more society and individuals reject God, the more they reject peace. The reverse is very true; the more we accept and worship God, the more peacefully we live.
