Maybe you have felt this way before.
When the city erupts in violence, when the culture cries out for vengeance, when nations are quick to take up arms, when men love war more than peace, and when those who speak for peace are marginalized as soft, impractical, or disloyal, we cry out to God:
"Too long have I had my dwelling
among those who hate peace.
I am for peace,
but when I speak, they are for war!"
(Psalm 120:6-7 ESV)
