The following was submitted to us by Frank Morris.
Signs with “God Bless America” used to decorate much of the landscape following the horrendous attack of 9/11; they’re back up now after the horror of Orlando. Americans everywhere are expressing a sincere desire for help at this time in our nation’s history. But who is this God whose blessings we seek?
What if the issue of being blessed is not as simple as just posting signs? Might we first be required to identify and honor this God before blessings will be given? Perhaps it is time for us to dust off our spiritual primers and learn again the basics of religious thought and devotion. Spiritual homework has not been required of us for years; life’s exams have been relatively easy in these modern times.
Up until now, that is. Now we are in a struggle to protect all that we hold dear.
