IT ALL STARTS WITH YOU

GALATIANS 5

13-15

For you, brothers, were called to freedom; but do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh.  Rather, serve one another in love.  The entire Law is fulfilled with a single decree: "Love your neighbour as yourself."  But if you keep on biting and devouring each other, watch out, or you will be consumed by each other.

22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  Against such things there is no Law.

In my life, I have heard so many people answer the question; "what would you most like", with "world peace".  Peace is not to be acquired outside of ourselves.  Peace starts with us individually, because peace lies within us.

Michael Jackson sung; "If you want to make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make a change".

Gandhi said; "Be the change you want to see in the world".

If you want to see more peace, start with yourself.  Be mindful of your thoughts, in order to think peacefully.  Then you can be mindful of your words, so that you speak peacefully.  Subsequently, you can then be mindful of your actions, in order to act peacefully.  If you think, talk and act peacefully, you will live peacefully.

It all starts with self-awareness.  Being aware of what you are thinking, being aware of your vocabulary and being aware of your actions.

Do not look at what anyone else is doing.  You are not responsible for anyone else's life.  You are responsible for your life.

If we all start with ourselves individually, we will have the peace that we crave.

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, THINK BIG, AND FOLLOW YOUR HEART
