"All your children shall be taught by the
Lord, and great shall be the peace of
your children." Isaiah 54:13
The verse above, Isaiah 54:13, teaches that when our children are taught Biblical truths, they shall have peace. A society of friendship and harmony is the absence of hostility and violence for our children. That kind of society would be wonderful, not only for our children, but also for our country.

Bible Truth: Kindness is best!
Almost everyone knows the story called "The Good Samaritan" and the best way to treat people called "The Golden Rule" found in the Bible. But have you heard of the "The Popularity Principle"?
3) Do not let kindness and truth leave you; Bind them around your neck, Write them on the tablet of your heart. 4) So you will find favor and a good reputation in the sight of God and man. Proverbs 3:3-4
There’s nothing wrong with the desire to be liked. We all want to be known and loved. But when our desire to be popular causes us to make bad choices, it’s just not worth it. In this passage, we can see that God’s way of kindness will bring about the right kind of popularity – the kind that leads to a good reputation among friends and neighbors. Choosing kindness may not be “popular” in the moment but the Bible promises it will always lead to our best reputation and the best outcome.
