I think we all certainly want Peace on Earth and Good will toward Men, but what does that really mean? As many people around the world get ready to celebrate the birth of Jesus we should think about what those words would mean to him. Indeed we should think about what those words should mean to us and what we are willing to do to make them come true.
If Jesus, Mohamed, Yahweh and Buddha sat around a table to discuss what the words meant I am sure they would all be dismayed at how many people have twisted or ignored their teachings for their own purposes. I am also certain you would not hear a harsh word amongst them. You may see them shed some tears over the number of people that have said harsh words, or even worse, waged wars in their names. As you can imagine they would never come to blows over how to make the world better for everyone.
They would discuss how disappointed they are that mankind continues to waste all the tools they have been given fighting amounts themselves instead of using them to solve all the problems facing them. God would then wonder why people have not yet figured out they should be using the tools they have to unite people. God wants everyone to understand that mankind can end poverty and hunger and cure all the diseases laid in front of them if they simply use the resources and tools he has given them. We really have been given everything we need, we just need to work together and use it.
So please wish Peace on Earth and Good Will to everyone you see, but more importantly live it. Get motivated, do everything you can to bring the world closer, so we can all work together to make the world a better place.
