Let us not forget God
Let us not forget God. The blessings and providence of God is the cornerstone of our representative democracy. The Bible tells us, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” (Proverbs 9:10)
America has become a beacon of hope and destination for survival, justice and opportunity for millions of people from all parts of the earth. Please use your Bible and study Acts 17:2531. There you will find the Bible sets forth the sovereignty of God and our accountability to Him, that we do well to always remember and honor. The passage tells us forthrightly Who is in charge, Who made all of us, by Whose authority and power all things consist and finally to Whom we will be ultimately accountable for all our decisions and actions, including our governance. God has instructed us to love one another. See John 13:34 and 1 John 4:7.
As a people, we are called to repentance for our national and individual sins. Our reverence for God, His blessings and our future all depend upon our obedience and love for God and our embrace of our national family. Political views and affiliation notwithstanding, we work together under God.
We cannot face the future without God and His blessings. The recent presidential campaign and election was a bitter “in your face” experience for all of us. There is considerable anger, disappointment, adulation, confusion and fear as to where we are headed as a nation. That will not excuse bad manners and disrespect toward any part of our national family. We must not forget our Source; God has made us each other’s keepers and blessings. Respect God.
