"Gideon built an altar to God and called it ‘God is Peace’". [Judges 6.24]
It might take a shift in thinking, but what if our conception of God became that God is All Good; not that God is good, but that God is Good. Rather than thinking of God as being able to grant abundance, we might think of God as infinite Abundance. Rather than a loving God, God is Love. Rather than a God of peace, God IS Peace.
Ralph Waldo Emerson said, “Be careful what you worship, for what you worship you will become. What you praise, you will grow into.” If we worship the God who is Peace, then we who are made in God’s image will be the manifestation of peace. And won’t that be good for our world?!
