What an interesting coincidence that just last night i posted a verse about peace vs. violence.
The only solace I can take in light of today’s events is that I serve a God who does not want violence — or the means of spreading it — as an option or lifestyle for anyone. I serve a God who knows firsthand the desolation that violence can cause, but who has redeemed his ways and opted for a new covenant of peace.
I serve a God who is absolutely heartbroken over the deaths of each and every one of those people in Newtown, CT — children, teachers, and killer alike.
Give me 3 good reasons why guns should be accessible in this country… and try to convince me. I will try my best to listen and understand. But right now, all I can feel is shame and sadness for this country and its priorities.
