Love and forgiveness dispel fear and anger.

As he drew near, he saw the city and wept over it, saying, “If this day you only knew what makes for peace—but now it is hidden from your eyes.”
Jesus, who came to be known as the “Prince of Peace,” was thoroughly rejected.
He called himself “the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6) because he revealed the way to peace and true life.
But his own people…and everyone else…turned against him.
They were blind.
How are we still blind to the message of Jesus?
We still have violence and hate.
Jesus instructed us to love God, our neighbor as ourselves…and even our enemies.
All that…while also standing up and working for justice.
This is a tall order!
But deep inside…we know it’s the solution that’s never been tried.
May each of us resolve to try again today.
