WISDOM WEDNESDAY

 

The American Flag

 

What does INDEPENDENCE really mean?  We know what it means to a country but what does it mean to the individual?  Choices, freedom, living life as a free-spirit or is it interdependence?  How we are to live and behave toward our fellow man.  How are we to choose our individual INDEPENDENCE?

My country owes me nothing.  It gave me, as it gives every boy and girl, a chance.  It gave me schooling, independence of action, opportunity for service and honor.  In no other land could a boy from a country village, without inheritance or influential friends, look forward with unbounded hope.  ~~ Herbert Hoover

THAT’S BORN IN THE USA!

Life Wisdom

Do you know what Napoleon said about China?  “There lies a sleeping giant, and let him sleep, because if he awakens, he will shake the world.”

And I believe the church is just that: a sleeping giant.  We’re asleep because we have been chloroformed by the spirit of this age.

We’re bombarded on every side by all kinds of amusement.  Do you know what amuse means?  It’s a combination of two words.  Muse means to think, and the alpha prefix in front of it means “not to.”

We are a generation that is amusing ourselves into oblivion.  And it’s time to wake up!

If this were your last day on earth, how would you spend it? In amusement? Or in evangelism?
