I love America. I bet you do too.
With the government shut down and the prevailing selfish beliefs, I think it’s time for a ‘do over.’ We can fix the problems facing America but we have to come together with a set of beliefs based on God’s plan, not just our plan.
Below are some cultural beliefs that need to shift for us to truly be in the ‘land of the free and the home of the brave’. I’m talking about being free while we’re on this earth and also in the long term.
I raised my family on real and healthy cultural beliefs. They were prevailing beliefs not too long ago. Lately, I’m wondering what the heck is happening in America and what set of ideals are we sharing with our kids. It’s time for each of us as leaders in our families, at work and in the community to promote real, long lasting freedom. Let’s compare 2 sets of beliefs and consider which one you want to promote.
Popular Culture Says: Real Culture Says:
Fight & separate Talk it out and come together
Do it all alone Do it with a great team
Buy it and you’ll be happy Focus on loving relationships
Spend it all Spend some & Save some
Do it now Do it at the right time
Have sex Have sex in marriage
Be violent Be peaceful and in harmony
Be selfish Be of service
What do I want? What does God want?
Yes, this is America and we value freedom. However, freedom is not free. It comes at a cost. So, as Americans we can all do our part. Our leaders can set better examples of how this great nation can operate. So, let’s do better. Let’s promote real freedom in our families, our schools and our government.
I pray our country will get back ‘on track’ so we can all be free.
Will the real America please rise up?
