we’ll see some change.
There’s a lot of people on my Facebook news feed and my Twitter feed that are whining, complaining, and sharing their own thoughts on the fall of our nation due to the re-election of President Barack Obama.
They say things like, “There goes the nation as we know it!” Or, “Time to move out of the country!” Or even, “God is going to destroy this nation. Say goodbye to your religious freedoms as you know them!“
As I read these comments, I can’t help but be a little cynical.
First of all, I’ve heard this before. It’s a classic over-reaction by anyone on the losing side.
Secondly, maybe that’s what needs to happen. Maybe losing our religious freedom is a good thing. It will certainly weed out the fakers.
Do I welcome persecution? Now way!
But, if I’m persecuted for my faith in Jesus Christ, I believe Jesus himself said I should consider it an honor. (Matt 5:11, 12)
In the meantime, pray for our president, look to how you can add value to people, and become part of the eternal solution.
It is well with my soul…
