I went out riding today and I saw a car for sale in a parking lot beside the highway. It was a KIA Soul. I thought, “Isn’t that something? Times are so bad that people have to sell their soul.” Just then my humorous thought turned to dismay. Could that be what is wrong with the good old U.S. of A.? Have we pushed God out of the way? For we have left him out of our homes, schools, government, courts, military and some of our churches. One of our political parties even left Him out of their platform. His name was put back in under much protest. Has He left us because we have left Him? Nothing we do seems to fix the problem. There seems too much disagreement on what the problem is and who or what caused it. Well, we caused it. For we have believed lies and failed to see the truth. Our actions clearly show that we have forsaken THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE.
What could I ever do that would help or make any difference? Low and behold, sometimes later I saw another sign beside the highway that had the answer on it. The answer can be found in a book that most of us have in our homes; it’s called the Bible. The reference is 2 Chronicles 7:14. I know that it will work. It always has!
