Individually and Collectively
This verse got me to thinking about peace among Peoples.
22 Run away from adolescent cravings. Instead, pursue righteousness, faith, love, and peace together with those who confess the Lord with a clean heart. 23 Avoid foolish and thoughtless discussions, since you know that they produce conflicts. source 2 Timothy 2 CEB
In part I gather from this that peace must be pursued individually to be achieved collectively. And I am confident eternal peace is on the horizon, individually and collectively for those who have with a clean heart pursued the Prince of peace.
Isaiah 9:6 (NKJV) 6 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. source
The world has many ills, many hurts, many sins; this I know, to continue to resist the Prince of Peace individually or collectively is the dominate impediment to peace on earth and good will to one another.
