Many issues shout out for attention this week. Impeachment madness casts a pall over Washington, D.C. and remains a waste of time and money by progressive politicians bent on overturning the 2016 election. Let’s vote them out in 2020.
I’m still weighing President Trump’s decision to remove troops from Northern Syria. Most people I trust say it is a bad move for stability, religious freedom, and rewarding loyalty in the region. But it might be a wise decision to force other nations to rise to their responsibilities. Time will tell.
In the next few weeks I will be giving some messages on “Humility”–a subject far removed from the Twitter mob wars in the U.S. and bombing campaigns in the Middle East. But it’s a vital subject for those of us “seeking first God’s Kingdom and His righteousness” (Matthew 6:33).
And I’ve come to a conclusion.
A wise person will humbly accept their limits.
As impeachment-mania rages in the mainstream media in the United States, and as President Trump counter punches Joe and Hunter Biden with allegations of nepotistic corruption in Ukraine and China, I hear some voices in the background.
They are extremely agitated, cunning, reckless, and running scared.
There are other voices I long to hear, but in today’s column I will focus on the background wails that seem to be rising in the United States and all over the world.
I hear a cry of desperation.
Not long ago a friend on the east coast went through a major moral failure. After much prayer and sharing, I sent an email to him sharing my best advice on righting his personal life.
Because he was not a believer, I decided to appeal through a popular concept that contained sound biblical principles. That teaching is called “Confronting the Brutal Facts.”
We need that same truth today to face what might be the most consequential development of our lives.
History may one day call it “The Great Turning Away.”
