Are you a servant or a friend of the Lord?
 
Jesus Christ says that he considers people not his servants, but his friends. The attitude towards God, the tendencies and reasons for seeking him actually show whether you want to be a servant or whether you want to be a friend and relative of the Lord.
Fr. Tigran Badiryan speaks on this.

Why does God allow wars to happen?
 
God gave man freedom to follow him and fulfill his will, but man voluntarily renounces freedom and God's presence. If in small personal experiences we deviate from the Lord's path, then why do we blame God in big experiences for not allowing war?

Give gentleness and sweetness to receive love
