Isaiah 60:18 -- On Building a Better World

"Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise."
Isaiah 60:18

No violence.  Wow.  Can you even imagine?  I like verse like this that talk about the future in such a positive way.  We know that bad things will happen as the earth is cleansed in the last days.  Lots of predicted destruction, lots of things that don't seem that fun to live through... but then there are these gems.  Salvation, Praise, the absence of violence.  We have to be on this earth and learn a lot of things... we have to be able to tell the difference between Good and Evil, and we can't do that without having the opportunity to see both and to choose freely between them.  Through all of it though, we can look forward to the rest and the peace that God promises.  Good will triumph, bad will be eradicated, and that's how things like this can happen.  Zero violence.  Something that we can't even imagine in our society.  Today, let's look forward to a better world, and do our best to make it happen.
