True Peace

God’s peace is not the world’s peace,

it is a true peace versus a fake peace.

The peace of God lives for the covenant,

the peace of the world lives for the transaction.

Peace pretenders grip competition.

Peacekeepers embrace cooperation.

They remain calm in adversity,

resigned to justice with mercy.

Peace pretenders make up opposition.

Peacekeepers are gentle and kind.

They remain humble in hardship,

with good will to their enemies.

Peace pretenders annoy allies.

Peacekeepers accept divergence.

They remain patient in service

soothing hurts and healing wounds.

The peace of God-is graceful and blessed.,

The peace of the world is empty and void,

World’s peace enables trivial triflings.

God’s peace empowers real freedom.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
