What Is Your Greatest Hope?

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said: “If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream.” Dr. King’s hope was similar to the words that John Lennon wrote in a song. Do you remember the words he wrote? “Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us, and the world will live as one.” I always loved that song. And doesn’t it describe what most people in this world hope for? Peace. This world is full of violence and anger and WAR. Most people want peace but the few who don’t, ruin it for everyone else. What is the answer? You might enjoy viewing this 3 minute video. https://www.jw.org/en/jehovahs-witnesses/free-bible-study/video-why-study-the-bible/

Yes, it would. Unfortunately, there are those that want to keep the world in turmoil. It's a small percentage of people who are causing all this unrest in the world, but their methods are very disturbing and causing a LOT of pain and suffering. Watch the video and you will see WHY the world is in such a mess.
It is my recurrent theme that 99% want peace and 1% stand in their way. Our big leaders blow hot and cold - they want others to change while putting themselves on a high pedestal preaching down to others. There should be give and take - love and forgiveness are eminently possible to practice. Unity in diversity - the oneness of humanity with the uniqueness in us shining our way is the way forward - siva
