No Penalty Flags

As we approach the start of the college and NFL football seasons, perhaps it is a good time to remember what George Will once said about the game: “Football combines the two worst things about American life. It is violence punctuated by committee meetings.” 
Perhaps committee meetings are a necessary evil. But everyone seems to agree that there is far too much violence in our society. “Peaceful” protesters block traffic and loot from local businesses. Women and children are abused. Many babies suffer violent deaths in their own mothers’ wombs. Punches are thrown and guns are fired with little or no provocation. 

Where does it all end? 

Well, we won’t have perfect peace until the perfect Prince of Peace returns. But in the meantime, let’s all do our part to make the world a kinder, gentler place.  

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.”—Matthew 5:9.
