Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27
In Israel, Jews greet each other with the words shalom, shalom. Unlike the English word peace, shalom does not just mean peace of mind, but also wholeness for the entire being spirit, soul and body. It means having a sense of completeness and soundness. In other words, shalom encompasses a provision for our total well-being.
