I commit to a path to peace.
I may be tempted to focus on what is wrong with the world as headlines highlight stories of chaos and conflict. If I dwell on that news, I feel discouraged. Instead, I choose to focus on what is right with the world. I notice the inspiring evidence of goodness and peace being shared. People all over the world are helping others in distress. Volunteers build houses, grow crops, and provide medical care. Community members stand up for neighbors who have been treated poorly. I see evidence of Spirit manifesting as good works sprout, grow and enrich our world. I find ways to spread peace and love by sharing my time, skills and resources within my community and beyond.
Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace.—Proverbs 3:17
