So Jesus said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” – John 20:21 NKJV
Wishing peace and ease to others in a troubled world is important.
Everyday the news alerts us to violence and chaos.
I often don’t read the news because I like to preserve a peaceful mindset, but every once and a while something tragic happens that I see on social media, such as the recent school shooting at an elementary school in Texas. Nineteen children and two teachers were killed by an 18-year-old gunman.
God hears our sorrow. He comforts those who mourn.
The violence in this world doesn’t always make sense to us, yet God has a purpose for each and every one of us, and when He sends us somewhere or impresses us to pray for someone, we must listen. Amen.
