We live in a time when hate seems to be at an all-time high. Tensions are high over issues of race, gender, political persuasion and just about everything else! Ironically, at the same time hate is high, belief in God is on the decline. Whether you choose to believe in him or not makes no difference. He is. And He is love. Even in the Old Testament, in which God seems to be an angry God, his anger is directed at people who refuse to follow rules that, in the end would keep them safe. God is love. Without that foundation, love is impossible. You can not build a skyscraper on a swamp. You need a deep and firm foundation. In the same way, you can not build a relationship of love without the foundation of love established by one who is, in essence love. Peace and unity will not come through equality and tolerance, it will come through God’s love because when we love as God loves, according to his precepts, peace and unity are the natural result. When God is present, love is inevitable, when God is absent, love is impossible.
