I realize that I am biased, but I believe that we live in the greatest country in the world. There are many reasons that we can give for what makes us so great, but I believe that it fundamentally begins with the fact that God has blessed our country. I worry, however, that what has made us great is now what our country is moving away from.
In Judges 2:20-21 it states, “20 Then the anger of the Lord was hot against Israel; and He said, “Because this nation has transgressed My covenant which I commanded their fathers, and has not heeded My voice, 21 I also will no longer drive out before them any of the nations which Joshua left when he died, ”
Let me give you some examples of how we transgressed:
- We condemn prayer and Bible reading in our schools, but allow vulgar and violent “freedom of speech” that can get away with saying anything and everything.
- We will put a person in prison for taking a dog’s life, but legally permit a doctor to take a little babies life.
- We place pornography in our grocery stores and then take the Ten Commandments from our courtrooms…
Pray for us to return to what has made us great and remember why it has made us so great.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
