The most elusive of all human desires

The Society of International Law reports that during the last three and a half thousand years there have been less than three hundred years of peace. That means the entire world has been at peace less than eight percent of the time! What is even more interesting is that during this time more than eight thousand peace treaties were made – and broken. Peace is the most elusive of all human desires. Whether it be peace among nations, peace within our families, or just peace within our own hearts; there’s nothing we want more, and nothing that seems to elude us more. That’s why, of all the promises Jesus made, the promise of peace draws so many to him. ‘Peace I leave with you,’ he said. ‘My peace I give you.’ And the best part of it is that his peace is an inner peace that’s always there.
