on truth & peace…

No man is exempt from suffering.  If we suffer, let it be for Christ.  If we forgive, let us forgive for Christ’s sake.  May truth stand before us always.  “Truth before peace” is how one engineering student put it… And this ‘peace’ is not the peace of Christ in John 14:27, nor the peace between the two world wars… but that spiritual and material comfortableness for which we trample underfoot our principles and justice; that state of ‘tolerance’ which helps us go to bed each night with a compromise in our heart, only to wake up the next morning with a new compromise under our pillow.
