I saw a bumper sicker the other day that said “Teach Peace.” The sticker was speaking of the absence of war, but that’s not truly possible unless we teach selflessness. I believe that teaching peace really means teaching selflessness. There is no true peace outside of ourselves unless we first learn to serve out of selflessness.
Above that, we need a greater focus beyond ourselves–I believe that could only be the Triune God. If you want peace, serve someone larger than yourself, God. Give to others, work to be selfless, and peace will be the fruit.
