Jesus said true peace comes like this, “If you are about to offer your gift to God at the altar and there you remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar, go at once and make peace with your brother; and then come back and offer your gift to God.” (Matt. 5: 23-24) According to Jesus, peace with God is impossible until we have made peace with others. Genuine peace comes when all parties want and seek it. World peace will come when people all over the world, people like us, seek it between family, friends, neighbors, church members, churches, lovers, and enemies.
