Sunday Night Reflections

What If...

World War I began in July of 1914. Many thought the war would be over in a very short period of time, but it raged on and thousands lost their lives. Some asked for a truce on Christmas day in 1914. Those in charge declined. But nonetheless, a miracle happened, guns were laid aside and opposing sides came together, offering gifts of food, cigarettes and cigars. It is believed that even a game of soccer was played. As the day drew to a close, the soldiers returned to their foxholes and once again picked up their guns and the war raged on.

What if they had refused to fight? What if the soldiers who came together had laid down their guns and refused to go on?

What about our present day wars, the wars that we fight in our daily lives? What are our weapons? They are jealousy, prejudices, anger, unforgiveness, spite, hate. What if we were to lay these guns aside? 
What if?
