I may use those in a future post but today I am posting a video based on the Sunday School lesson that was shared this morning. It seems in our lessons we are being given repeated wake up calls for America. Interesting that there are parallels with Israel - 'If you obey God, nations will hear of your greatness; if you turn away from God, nations will sneer at your destruction.' 2 Chronicles 7.
This was a message given by Paul Harvey in 1965! It seems a bit prophetic to me even though he may not have intended it as such. (You may need to turn your volume up to hear this better because of the older recording. I liked this video best even though it is missing Paul Harvey's signature ending: "good day!".)
Verses for Today:
2 Chronicles 7:21-22 (NIV)
21And though this temple is now so imposing, all who pass by will be appalled and say, ‘Why has the Lord done such a thing to this land and to this temple?’ 22People will answer, ‘Because they have forsaken the Lord, the God of their fathers, who brought them out of Egypt, and have embraced other gods, worshiping and serving them—that is why he brought all this disaster on them.
As we prepare to vote in some local elections this week, and mindful of the national conventions to take place in a few weeks, I am praying for wisdom in America's leaders and guidance on election choices.
