Goodness and Greatness

"Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord."1

Georgie Anne Geyer, a syndicated columnist and author wisely observed: "I have come to the conclusion that it is impossible to have a moral community or nation without faith in God, because without it everything rapidly comes down to 'me' and 'me' alone is meaningless....

"If anyone thinks there is not a direct and inviolable relationship between personal integrity ... and that society's prosperity, that person has simply not studied history. And this should not surprise us. Great moral societies, built upon faith in God, honor, trust and the law blossom because they are harmonious; because, finally, they have a common belief in something beyond themselves.

"Alexis de Toqueville said it best when he realized even at the very beginning of our national life: 'America is great because America is good. If America ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.'"2

The same is true of Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Mexico, New Zealand, South America, and the rest of the world. Nations only become truly great and remain great to the degree that they are moral and upright, that they retain integrity at every level of society, and that they put and keep their trust in God and abide by his rules as found in his Word which says, "Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord."1 and "Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people."3

Righteousness with moral and upright living begins with you and me.

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, today I pray that You will send a great moral and spiritual awakening to my country and let that awakening begin in me. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully in Jesus's name. Amen."
