Peace and War

18D7F46F-E53A-4239-8FA4-8179CC2141A5“When a man’s ways please the Lord, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16:7‬ ‭ESV

As tensions rise and the threat of war seems eminent, I paused to think about when is war the right course of action. Our nation ignored the atrocities of the Nazis and the Axis Powers until Pearl Harbor was bombed. Now we have been ignoring the atrocities of Middle Eastern terrorists until recent targeted attacks. I hate war and long for Peace, but sometimes evil requires annihilation.

Deadliest Animal

B6A73863-E95F-42B0-8757-EC3DB916E167What is the most deadly animal? Crocodiles, Hippopotamuses, Snakes, Sharks, Wolves, Parasites, Mosquitoes??
Yet again, I find conflicting information; but, certainly near the top of the list, if not the most dangerous, are humans. We account for nearly 1/2 Million homicides annually plus combat deaths. We naturally have aggression and have the ability to use various techniques/weapons to carry out this carnage. When will we learn to respect the sanctity of life??
