A Verse for Meditation

Torah ScrollPeace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid.  John 14:27

  • How do you define peace? According to your definition, is world peace possible?
  • Many people say that they want world peace. Because of this desire, they oppose war. Is this the sort of peace Jesus was talking about?
  • What did Jesus mean when he said that he was not giving his gift the way the world gives gifts?
  • A friend told me that her cousin is in a drug rehab program. How is it even possible that her heart won’t be troubled? Why wouldn’t any normal person be afraid for this young man? What good is the peace of Christ for my friend?
  • What are you afraid of? Does the peace of Christ address your fears?
