Biblical Peace

The biblical idea of peace
is not so much the absence of war
as it is the presence of
a right relationship with God.
We sometimes forget
that peace begins in the human soul.
A Chinese proverb explains why:

“If there is right in the soul,
there will be beauty in the person,
there will be harmony in the home.
If there is harmony in the home,
there will be order in the nation.
If there is order in the nation,
there will be peace in the world.”
