While contemplating our nation’s 237th birthday, I continue to be awed at the wisdom of our founding fathers, the amazing growth of our God fearing nation, and the path of decline our nation is currently on. It has me very concerned because, while we are a great nation, most people I talk to also believe that we are on a downward slope.
So those thoughts got me thinking about what we need to do to restore our country to greatness.
- Spend time as a family
- Open Scripture
- Turn off your TV
- Get to know your neighbors
- Eat dinner with your kids
- Unplug your computer and video games
- Stand up for what is right
- Read more
- Get outside and enjoy nature
- Slow down
- Pursue wisdom, not information
I’m sure there are more items for that list but if we each did all of those activities, we’d be off to a great start. And this effort starts in the heart. It begins with individuals and it begins with me. Our nation’s turnaround and revival will not be legislated or mandated. It will happen organically within individuals and bleed into families and homes. And once it is in the homes throughout America, we can begin the healing process and right this ship of ours.
