God Of War Or Peace? - Poem by James E. Hodges

You can have your God of war,
Or choose your enemy near or far.
I claim a God of love and peace,
He prays to men for war to cease.

The God I worship gives us choice,
We can think, act, by body or voice.
Of the people who work and strive,
You, I, and others keep wars alive.

Our God of love, peace does not ask,
For killing our brothers to be our task.
We tend to love some and hate others,
And hate to accept all people as brothers.

As Christians we should always pray,
That our Father God will hasten the day
So inward and outward we find His peace,
Then, God and us would see wars cease.
