  1. If only we, as a comminity in Gods world, all came to realize this, what a wonderful place out hearts would be in and this would naturally be passed on to others, eventually expanding the globe

  2. Thank you for this thought. In the shuffle and chaos of daily living, I often give this away based on my circumstances. By looking inward I can find the joy and contentment to sustain me throughout the day.

  3. We are totally responsible, ultimately for ourselves, and everything in our lives. If we have the courage to remember this and the fact that nobody in the world can give us peace but ourselves, we would then stop blaming others for our own lack of peace. This would stop a lot of blaming and judging others. Remember the words of Lord Jesus,"My peace is not of the world."
