"MY PEACE I GIVE UNTO YOU . . . LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED."
I BEGIN THIS DAY with Jesus' words to comfort and bless me, and give me peace of mind. No matter where I am, no matter what I need to do, no matter what the conditions in the world are, I rely on the peace that God has given me to keep my heart untroubled and my mind serene. In this way I bless my world with peace and I contribute to the peace of the whole world.
God is the Father of every person, everywhere. Through His son, Jesus, He is making all His sons this promise: "My peace I give unto you." And we in turn can give this peace to others through our prayers and our blessings. Each of us who reads this lesson and accepts this promise for himself is doing something important toward the establishment of peace on earth. For peace begins in the hearts and in the minds of men.
Prayer reaches from heart to heart, across man-made boundaries, past language differences. As we pray for and accept God's peace, we are helping to establish peace and to keep peace.
My peace I give unto you . . . Let not your heart be troubled. JOHN 14:27.
