Fourth of July…. Independence day. While I am thankful to be an American, I am more
glad that I am a child of God. I believe that this is the best country in the world, but while it is best, it is not perfect.
We are human, and we fall so short in how we love. So today as you celebrate the ideals that this country was founded upon, also remember that our government has never lived up to those ideals. And that includes the men who wrote them.
I do believe that we can though. There is one caveat. I do believe to accomplish this lofty goal, only the love of God working through people can make this happen. So to those of you who profess to know God, go for it! Love God, Love Others!
And for those of you who don’t profess a belief in God, I would encourage you to continue to love people also. This is an all skate. And if there is a point where you are running out of steam, check God out. You never know what He might have to say specifically to you.
Let’s finally make those words spoken so long ago, more than just words. Together….let’s make them truth!
Happy Birthday America!!
