Proverbs 28:2

When there is moral rot within a nation, its government topples easily. But wise and knowledgeable leaders bring stability.

Reflective Thinking

There is a paraphrased quote from a speech that Abraham Lincoln gave that I thought about when reflecting on this proverb. It goes like this, “America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”. Most of you can already see this happening now. The truth is that it’s been happening for quite some time. Know this, if we as a nation do not change our declining moral compass and if we continue to give away our freedoms to the government you’ll see what the evils of a bad government look like first hand. As history constantly repeats it’s self… it won’t be something you and your families are going to enjoy.

Action Idea

The most impactful and immediate thing we are to do is pray for our nation and our leaders. Pray they submit their lives to Jesus. Pray they receive God’s wisdom. Pray our nation is protected from evil. Pray God changes us to look more like Him. Freedom isn’t free. It always has a cost. We must fight for it and it starts in prayer. Remember, where the Spirit of the Lord there is Freedom!
