Power of Love

I recently saw a bumper sticker:

When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will find peace.

 A very simple statement with so much wisdom.  I think about the political debates and world issues.  It comes down to the difference between love and greed/power.  If we can reach in our hearts and find love and acceptance of each other, we can make decisions based on love rather than power and dominion over others.  The world is growing smaller with technology and limited resources.  We are all in the world and need each other if we are all going to be able to survive.  We need peaceful means to preserve our world by reducing pollution, waste, landfills, global warming, wars that take away needed resources for creative and sustainable endeavors, disease, and marginalized communities.  We can begin to collaborate to solve world-wide issues such as renewable energy, adequate food and water for all, jobs, housing, education, medical advances, safety of our environment, peace, and provide hope.  We have the resources and need to share them with each other.  There is no room for hate and greed, selfishness and prejudice. Anger is the absence of love.  Love can not co-exist with hate.  With forgiveness and tolerance, we can begin to move forward to make this world a beautiful, safe and satisfying experience for each person.  Life is so brief but we have the opportunity to make a difference.  Choose love not hate.  Peace instead of war.  Do the right thing because it is the right thing to do!  With God all things are possible!
