With the frequent outbreaks of terrorism around the world, there may be a tendency to believe that terrorism is a new norm for society to expect and live with. I rebel at this suggestion!
Terrorism is wrong. It’s evil. It is not right. And because it’s not right, it can be corrected.
What is going to be required of humanity in terms of moral and spiritual reformation to correct this error, time will tell. But it’s important that we actively engage now with its dissolution so that it isn’t allowed to grow.
“Human hate has no legitimate mandate and no kingdom,” Mary Baker Eddy wrote
(Science and Health, p. 454). This is a demonstrable truth. “Love is enthroned,” she continued.
Terrorism would prey upon fear and ignorance. But understanding the might and power of divine Love to establish order, harmony and peace, dissolves fear, inspires discerning action, and takes the target of terrorism away.
Whether we live close to a terrorism hotspot, or far away, our prayers help all the same. What we know to be spiritually true where we stand, is true for everyone wherever they stand. Truth and Love are all encompassing.
So, don’t let mortal mind put your thought into an apathetic feeling of helplessness that accepts terrorism as inevitable. Resist it mightily for your benefit and your neighbor’s. It’s not normal. It’s not acceptable, and it can be overcome with Truth and Love.
