Notice how much hate and anger are in our culture/country today? Hate for our President, hate for whites, hate for Democrats, hate for minorities, hate for Republicans, etc. You can’t miss it if you turn on the 5:30 news.

The solution to eliminating the hate and anger: Jesus Christ. As a Christian I know what I must do to attain eternal life (Matthew 22: 36-40): put God first and love your neighbor as yourself.

There can be no lasting justice and peace without putting God in our lives and in our Nation. Justice comes from giving both God and our neighbor their due. When we do that we can experience peace, for peace comes from putting things (God and neighbor) in the right order.

If you wish to experience peace and joy – put God first! Then seek others who do the same.
