I know this blog is supposed to be about the daily readings, but I’m going to veer from that for today. I’ll keep it short. I want to talk for a moment about America.
Many people are uncomfortable mixing religion with patriotism. For the most part, I am, too. Many people think that if you are not a good Christian (which mostly means that you believe like they do), then you are not a good American. I don’t subscribe to that theory. I do, though, believe in the converse: you can be a good Christian and not be a good American.
I don’t want to get into politics or policy. Let me just say that I am grateful to God that He has put me in this time and place. I consider it a privilege to live in this great nation. I appreciate the many freedoms we enjoy, and the men and women who serve our nation to protect those freedoms. So, though some may be uncomfortable with it, I’m going to say it, and make it my ear worm for the day. God Bless America!
