Fourth of July
As a nation we can grow complacent in our land of plenty.
It is often... not until we have a tragedy or emergency
that we turn our thoughts back to God.
Our nation is about to celebrate another Independence Day.
We use this holiday to commemorate
the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776,
which declared our independence from Great Britain.
I am thankful for all the freedoms that we enjoy,
which have been paid for by all those who have served
and are presently serving in the armed forces.
May our nation also, humbly recognize how God has blessed us.
May our nation never operate independently of Him.
"If my people, which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face,
and turn from their wicked ways;
then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land."
2 Chronicles 7:14
How do we typically make judgments
about matters facing our country?
Do we rely on logic and personal preference,
or do you examine the issues according to the Scriptures?
