The following text came to me yesterday from a fellow missions leader:
“Hi, Ron. Besides voting, which doesn’t seem to do much good, is there anything else that can be done to slow down the runaway circus of government? It’s getting quite serious!”
I gave him my answer, which I’ll share later.
In today’s article, I had already planned to discuss this problem from an unusual angle.
We the People–and our desperate need for a renewal of virtue.
The calendar has clicked over to 2019 and many of us are wondering and praying about the coming year.
What is in store for our families and the world in the year of our Lord 2019? What personal assignments does God have for you this year?
As usual, in this first blog of 2019, I will attempt to give you a 30,000 foot view of some of today’s issues and what they mean.
Here’s my view of the world in 2019.
This week we celebrate the life and legacy of George H.W. Bush, the 41st president of the United States. I never knew Bush the Elder on a personal level, but met him during the 1980’s. President Bush was an honorable man who served his family and country faithfully.
When I think of him, the character qualities of humility, loyalty and civility come to mind. These and many other traits are marvelously expounded in the Bible’s “Wisdom Book”–Proverbs.
If “imitation is the greatest form of admiration,” then we would do well to follow our former president’s example by re-discovering the moral power of the book of Proverbs.
After all, a proverb a day keeps sin away.
