Reading the Christmas passages from the Bible along with Advent devotionals, I have been reminded of what peace truly is.
Peace is not the absence of troubles and problems and stress and drama. Instead, peace is the presence of God.
My observation of the world and the people in it only confirms this belief. Nothing brings peace except God.
So it is fitting that the heavenly host along with the Angel while appearing to the shepherds said
“Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased.” (Luke 2:14)
Peace is not everywhere. And not everyone will have it. Peace is for those who know God.
