Peace Be With You

“World peace,” the Miss America finalist answered with a glowing smile. Unfortunately, follow up questions to flesh out these kinds of answers are rarely pursued. What exactly did she mean?

World compromise? World commonality? World justice? World status quo? World friendliness? World with no wars?

I imagine most people define “world peace” as something like “a general absence of external conflict extending through all nations.”
(if you don’t and feel misrepresented, feel free to write and give me your personal definition).

As far as I can tell, God never promised “world peace,” at least according to that definition, while this earth still exists. He does, however, offer something better and something lasting.
