God send forth peace that this world cannot offer. Peace emanate within in our hearts. It is a blessed peace of knowing God and His goodness to us. Peace will only takes place when we are living in the truth and following an example of Christ Jesus, who is the Prince of peace. Peace is the beginning of all the wonderful things in life. “Where there is faith, there is love; where there is love, there is peace; where there is peace, there is God; and where there is God; there is no need,” Leo Tolstoy quipped. Peace is not the availability of our basic needs such as food, clothing and shelter. It is not the absence of war and misunderstanding. Peace does not commence when we are successful, famous and powerful. Honor, fame and material success are not the foundation of real peace but the beginning of pride
