Before we begin, I forgot to post on Saturday that it is time for us to continue on Pilgrim's Progress. We hope that you have been able to catch up but it is time for the rest of us to move forward. You can always find the posts that you need and comment or question. I will answer them, no matter how long since we passed that section. For those ready to move on, Please refer to this post to get your reading assignment for this week and to review where we left off. Those continuing...let's press on, I am excited to continue our journey!
"Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people."
This past Thanksgiving, how many of you took the time to pray for our nation? (And for those of you that live across the pond, of course this study can be applied to ANY nation!) In the last three years, how many times have you thanked God for Pres. Obama? Ouch. Me either.
Please take the time today to read Romans 13: 1-2.
We have spent much time talking about sin and righteousness as we have traveled through Proverbs. I believe that here in America that it is the fault of the Christians that America is in the shape that it's in. Christians who have not been respectful of the authority that God placed for a reason; Christians who have been too relaxed in their faith; Christians who find so many things to put above God.
I fear for our country. Today, please pray for your country. And for your fellow Christian family, that they would wake up and see that change has to happen with them first!
