Excess of Pride

Pride2016a3rdCompassDOTorg

Excess of pride brought our nations low. More rebuilding through pride will not bring prosperity. Campaigns that showcase making our nations strong again and rebuilding national pride have missed why they’ve come to this point.

They’ve turned their backs on God and what is right. God makes nations great, but He will bring them down if they do not come to what is right after straying. The United States, especially, has been given wake-up calls through 9-11 and financial upheavals, yet instead of humbly seeking to make things right with God, nations continue to stand proud in their own logic, strength and promises – they simply continue oblivious to what will guarantee permanent healing and prosperity. The only way back to blessing and promise is through God. May it be in Christ Jesus. Amen.

The wrong kind of pride is destroying our future

Abortion2016b

When facts supporting the immorality of abortion were given, someone sarcastically commented on the hundreds upon hundreds of adoptions being made to save those unwanted babies. There were millions upon millions of abortions performed since the United States legalized it, averaging over 1.3 million a year since 1973. After all, how could so many babies be adopted?
That isn’t the point. It’s society’s lack of accountability, self-control, and morals that are creating so many unwanted babies in the first place. The immorality of murder is justified in the name of personal freedom. Loose sexual morals and lust promoted by popular culture, and the absence of self-control, proper education and discipline of our children are promoting promiscuity that is creating all these unwanted babies.
So when serious moral consequences of abortion are given, criticism on what to do with all the babies is given instead of the realization that the causes of this problem are society’s exchange of the moral for the immoral. Pride in thinking that nothing wrong was done is blinding society. It does not want to see its wrongs and that lack of accountability will destroy our nations.

Allegiance to division always hinders

Division2016a3rdCompassDOTorg

Political parties, denominations, social castes, sects, and factions don’t serve the greater good when they work blindly to rigidly follow their group’s agendas. It undermines government and leadership and creates strife and endless arguing. Progress is swiftest when the gears of government and society do not constantly work against one another.
 
I’ve seen members of political parties plan to oppose leaders even before the leader is elected into power. I’ve seen them refuse to do their jobs correctly because they simply want to oppose the leader in power. I’ve seen voters continue to support their political group’s lines even when a candidate is obviously inappropriate for the job. How does this make for good government and leadership?
 
Leaders and citizens alike need to view things on a larger scale to achieve what is best for all. We need a God-centric view so we understand and act on issues without prejudice. Leave divisions behind. Leave sore feelings made by disagreements behind. Leave biased judgment based on loyalty to a group behind.
 
Instead, judge righteous and understand God’s will for the situation. Even God’s chosen can go astray if they do not understand what He wants (Numbers 15:44-45; Acts 9:1-3;21:4-14).
