05 Jul Heart to Heart with God: A Journey Towards Acceptance Day 32
365 Days of Reflection Towards God’s Love and Acceptance
~June 4, 2014-June 3, 2015~
Day 32-Datona Beach, Florida:
On Earth we have a history of long standing feuds between people of different religious beliefs and between people who disagree on whether God is real. The topic of God’s existence and presence in this world can drive a stake through the peace that we are meant to enjoy. Countries fight against other countries, and also people from the some places find it difficult to coexist. This is not a representation of the plan God has for this world, based on the teachings of Jesus.
One of the hardest things to accept is hearing about people killing other innocent people in the name of God. In a world that was built in seven days filled with love, how can this be? It is written that thou shall not kill, as one of the Ten Commandments. So does anyone really have the authority to kill someone else? The answer is no. Most people in this world are peaceful, but there are countries and groups of people that work to destroy God’s peace on Earth completely.
We have a beautiful planet filled with wonder and awe, which leads us to having an obligation to God to protect each other from harm until He returns. We also must work to promote peace in this world and between each other. Killing to prove a point only makes things worse and drives God’s children further and further apart. What can we do to promote peace in our families lives and also the communities in which we live? We can learn to love more and accept each other regardless of our individual religious practices.
May God help people all over the world come together towards peaceful resolutions, rather than war. Amen.
