THE PRICE OF PEACE
We seem always ready to pay the price for war. Almost gladly we give our time and our treasure – our limbs and even our lives – for war. But we expect to get peace for nothing. We expect to be able to flagrantly disobey God’s laws and get peace as a result.
Well, we won’t get peace for nothing – and we won’t get peace by disobeying the laws of God.
We’ll get peace only when are willing to pay the price of peace. And to a world drunk with power, corrupted by greed, deluded by false prophets, the price of peace may seem high indeed. For the price of peace is disobedience to the higher laws; evil can only be overcome by good and hatred by love; only a good means can attain a good end.
The price of peace is to abandon fear and replace it with faith – faith that if we obey God’s laws, we will receive God’s blessings. The price of peace the price of peace is to abandon hate and allow love to reign supreme in our heart – love for all our fellow human beings over the world. The price of peace is to abandon arrogance and replace it with repentance and humility, remembering that the way of peace is the way of love. The price of price is to abandon greed and replace it with giving so that none will be spiritually injured by having more than they need while others in the world still have less than they need.
People of the world, the time for decision is short. It is measured in a few years. The choice is ours as to whether or not we will pay the price of peace. If we are not willing to pay it, all that we hold dear will be consumed in the flame of war. The darkness in our world today is due to the disintegration of things which are contrary to God’s laws. Let us never say hopelessly this is the darkness before a storm; rather let us say with faith this is the darkness before the dawn of the golden age of peace, which we cannot now even imagine. For this, let us hope and work and pray.
This is Gandhi’s thought, work and life. A legacy we need to inherit in the journey of preaching the gospel of nonviolence and peace to testify that the philosophy of Gandhi never dies. Gandhi’s book; my life is Message attests to the price of peace.
The spiritual life is the real life Gandhi has left, all else is illusion and deception. Only those who are attached to God alone are truly free. Only those who live up to the highest light live in harmony and peace. All who act upon their highest motivations become a power for good. It is not important that others be noticeably affected; results should never be sought or desired. Know that every right you do – every good word you say – every positive thought you think as Gandhi’s thought – has good effect.
