My favorite was: "Don't worry your pretty little haid about it."
"Peace! Peace! Where there is no peace!!!" offered another. He worries about civil war, too, yes?
But the answer that provoked the most thought was:
Luke 12:51 - 53 (KJV) 51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: 52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. 53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
I've been wondering how this jibes -- and jibe it must, because it's Scripture, after all -- with Jesus' blessing on the peacemaker. And after I'd puzzled and puzzled til my puzzler was sore, and concluded that Luke 12:51-53, unlike the beatitudes, is descriptive rather than prescriptive, I wrote last night's post, in which I asked: Who is the Peacemaker?
