Navigating Our Deep Divisions

arguing

March 30, 2017

We're in some pretty difficult times, facing very real threats, and lovers of freedom are so divided on what the best way to deal with these difficulties is. 

What do I think? That as long as we are united, God will bless our endeavors. It's division and hate for one another that causes God's kindness to be tested

So as we face difficult questions, create new policy, and figure out how to tackle the challenges before us, this verse from Proverbs 10 must be our mantra: “Hatred stirs up conflict, but love covers over all wrongs.”

How do we keep God's blessings raining down on America, Israel, Europe, and lovers of God throughout the world? We show Him that within our differences we are unified, respectful, and that we love one another.
