If the morals fail, the country is doomed. The breakdown of morals and ethics will mark the breakdown of the nation.
This country’s morals when started were based on Christianity and it will need to continue any future success with Christianity. Much of the world is finding this out. And they are changing, will we?
We should not worry about it or anything else, we should have faith.
If you are a Christian, if you are a child of God then your worrying is sinful.
It is nothing, more or less than lack of trust in God. The only way to deal with worry is the way of faith.
faith in the presence of God.faith in the purposes of God.faith in the promises of God.
When we resist things we cannot change, then we have strain – inner tension – and that is wrong.
Worrying about it, fearing it, does not help. Life must go on, and so must we.
Worrying is rejecting God’s control. If not God’s control, Who? To what else will you cling? What would you substitute for Christian faith?
With this faith and with your commitment, it is time to act.
Can you honestly say that God and not money, is your master? One test is to ask which one occupies more of your thoughts, time and efforts.
(Matthew 6:24-34)”No one can be a slave of two masters, he will hate one and love the other, he will be loyal to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.
“This is why I tell you: do not be worried about the food and drink you need to order to stay alive, or about clothes for your body. After all, isn’t the body worth more than clothes? Look at the birds: they do not plant seeds, gather a harvest and put it in barns; yet your Father in heaven takes care of them! Aren’t you worth much more than birds? Can any of you live a bit longer by worrying about it?
“And why worry about clothes? Look how the wild flowers grow: they do not work or make clothes for themselves. But I tell you that not even King Solomon with all his wealth had clothes the wild grass – grass that is here today and gone tomorrow, burned up in the oven. Won’t he be all the more sure to clothe you? What little faith you have!
“So do not start worrying. Where will my food come from? or my drink? or my clothes? (These are the things the pagans are always concerned about.) Your Father in heaven knows that you need all these things. Instead, be concerned about everything else with the Kingdom of God and what he requires of you, and he will provide you with all these other things. So do not worry about tomorrow; it will have enough worries of its own. There is no need to add to the troubles each day brings.”
