Zechariah 8:19 NKJV

Thus says the Lord of hosts: The fast of the fourth month, the fast of the fifth, the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be joy and gladness and cheerful feasts for the house of Judah. Therefore love truth and peace.

As Zechariah prophesied about God's plans for Israel, He promised restoration. Israel was told that they would once again inhabit Jerusalem and enjoy the Lord's blessings there. He instructed them about how they were to conduct themselves. Part of those instructions included, "...love truth and peace." When we love something we will pursue it with passion. Let us love peace to the point where we refuse to accept anything that takes away from our peace. Let us love it to the point that when our peace is challenged we will do all we know to secure it. If it seems we have lost it, we will do all in our power to get it back. Let us love peace.
