PEACE OR PIECES?

“You can bomb the world to pieces, but you can't bomb it into peace” (Michael Franti & Spearhead). Anger and violence seldom solve problems. So, don’t let bitterness and rage steal your sweetness and gentleness. Commit with Max Lucado: “I choose gentleness… Nothing is won by force. I choose to be gentle. If I raise my voice may it be only in praise. If I clench my fist, may it be only in prayer. If I make a demand, may it be only of myself.”  Are you sorely provoked or hurt? “Let your gentleness be known to all men” (Philippians 4:5; cf. Romans 12:18). To right wrongs, write injuries in sand, and for each grievance, engrave gentleness in granite. The conquests of gentleness outlast the victories of violence.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
