God Has Times to Fight for the Cause

And He shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more.  O house of Jacob, come ye, and let us walk in the Light of the Lord.  Isaiah, Chapter 2, verses 4-5.

This is a very famous passage.  There is another passage in the Bible that is the complete opposite, telling people to beat their plowshares into swords and spears.  Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruninghooks into spears: let the weak say I am strong.  Joel, Chapter 3, verse 10

These passages tell me that God has times when we are to fight for the causes He wants.  Then there are times when we aren’t to fight and are to try to maintain peace in all aspects of our lives, if at all possible.

Because this is an example of how I’ve applied this Bible passage to my life, it doesn't necessarily reflect the whole meaning of the passage.

This is a connection I've made from this Bible passage. Please share your connections.
