    Maybe the essence of "peace" is "agreement."

    I agree that peace starts with a peace within.
    The hymn "Let There Be Peace on Earth" by Sy Miller and Jill Jackson says,
    "Let There Be Peace on Earth and let it begin with me."

    Some relevant passages:
    Matthew 7:13-14
    Enter through the narrow gate . . .

    Luke 11:17
    Any kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and a house divided against itself will fall.

    Matthew 4:17
    Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.

    Matthew 5:39
    If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also.

    Matthew 10:34
    I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.
    BUT
    Ecclesiastes 3:8
    [There is] a time for war and a time for peace.

    2 Corinthians 10:3-5
    . . . The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. . . .

    John 10:11-13
    I am the good shepherd. . . .

    John 17:22-23
    I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one.
