In the book compiled by George M. Wilson:
Words Of Wisdom A Journey Through Psalms and Proverbs
Billy Graham states in the forward:
‘The Psalms will tell you how to get along with God, and the Proverbs will tell you how to get along with your fellowman.’
Reading Psalms will teach you how to get along with God. Once you know God and understand Gods will for his children (you are one of his children) you will begin to have inner peace and be able to get along with yourself.
We were all made in Gods image, and we all need spiritual guidance to live harmoniously in today’s world. When cut all humans bleed red blood, when we die our bodies decay the same and our spirits reunite with our ancestors before us. Black, white, red or yellow we are all the same under the skin.
The world is full of hate and prejudice. The way the world is heading in today’s society (the year 2014) hate and prejudice will be here long after we are dead, buried and forgotten. It is a hard thing to get out of some ones bones after years of beating it into them.
But the good news is there is always hope and for someone to have inner peace they must let go of the hate and prejudice that has been plaguing them for years and forgive whoever has done them wrong.
This does not mean that you keep these people in your life. You do not need negative people surrounding you with negative thoughts. These kind of people love misery and misery loves company as many of you well know.
The key is to forgive and let go. Once this has been done the weight of the world will be lifted off your tired shoulders. You will have an overwhelming feeling of peace and happiness and begin to live your life anew.
