The Road Ahead Diverges




The movie Lincoln so beautifully expresses the life of a man who truly loved this country, led with wisdom, and did so in the fear of God.  Our nation should be in prayer that God would raise up another such a man. We should also be in prayer for the nation of Syria, because in her fate lies a tether our own.  Our prayers too should, as a sweet friend of mine pointed out, be with Mexico, where ruthless crime rules in their streets. Prayers for North Korea, where no longer do her people retain the knowledge of what freedom for its citizens looks like should be lifted.  On the continent of Africa, so many live in oppression.  In all of the Middle East violence and death are always just a blink away for any person living there.  All around the world people live in distress, poverty, and oppression, may God direct this country rightly in all our obligations.  May our leadership like President Lincoln, look to God for help in these perilous times.
