Good morning, this is Topher from Washington Church of Christ bringing you a positive message minute.

It's a little tougher to be positive when your news feed over the last 24 hours was flooded with graphic evidence of the destruction of the innocent and the harsh realities of retaliation.   I have my opinions, but I am no expert in the areas of international justice or peace, so my opinions will at this time remain my opinions.  Yet I am qualified by God's calling to share with you that Justice and Peace have struggled on opposite sides of picket lines many times in the history of our broken world.  Will the world ever find balance between Justice and Peace?

There is one Bible verse that brings my heart joy in such times as this as it points forward to a time that I know with certainty is coming.  I long for this day when Isaiah 32 speaks of a King who will rule in righteousness.  In verse 17, it says this, "And the work of justice shall be peace, and the service of justice quietness, and security for ever." (Isaiah32:17) - What a comforting and positive thought that scripture brings!  Today, let's combat the negativity in our lives by striving to make justice and peace focal points in our own lives and by looking forward with hope to the day God brings justice and peace together forever.  You'll be glad you did.
