…can grow anywhere at anytime, faster and denser than a patch of kudzu weed. Where does it come from? What nourishes it? How do you recognize it?
This week we celebrate the freedom of the United States of America. How do we guard and protect that freedom from apathy?
Well, can you cite at least one good thing our current president has done for our country? Here’s my example: he brought the remains of U.S. soldiers from the North Korean War home to American soil. My father was a veteran of that war, all defending our freedom. This was something to give thanks for as it brought closure and honor to so many.
Do you know who your state government officials in Washington are?
Do you know who your local government officials are?
Do you know that these officials ran for public office to serve? Therefore, you can and should contact them when you have questions, concerns and suggestions.
If you couldn’t answer even ONE of these questions I ask you to consider this – when did that kernel of apathy get planted in your heart and soul? Has it been there so long you fail to recognize it for what it is?
On this July 4, 2019, let us never forget the powerful words that not only declared America as a free nation, but also what it means to be free:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.”
——U.S. Declaration of Independence July 4, 1776
God, our Creator, gave us this freedom along with His Holy guidance to secure and honor that freedom. Let us be thankful and never forget that…
God Blessed America.
“And the Lord is the Spirit: and where the spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.”
2 Cor. 3:17
