“When I was your age we had dirt in our grits and we were happy to have it.” Mom likes to tell the story of how, as a child, the wind blew through the slats of their tobacco-barn-home, leaving a layer of dust on her breakfast. “Times were hard—not like they are now.”
Apparently I’m living in the golden age of civilization and maybe Mom is right. We Baby Boomers have enjoyed the best music, prosperity, peace and freedom of any generation before us. My boys played “organized” sports, wore bike helmets, listened to hip-hop-rap, and now find themselves highly educated but marginally employed in a country fighting three wars. And still we’re considered the greatest country on earth.
But will it last? God’s promise to bless His people was dependent upon their obedience. IF you FULLY OBEY the Lord your God and CAREFULLY follow ALL his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will…bless you in the land God is giving you. I cannot prove God blessed America but the evidence suggests He has. And still we remain an arrogant, prideful, and selfish nation that wants to kick God out of our schools, government and military. We may not have been founded as a purely Christian nation, but Christians founded this country. Sorry, I swerved into preaching.
