The question was asked, “Are you concerned for America?” The answer is…
I am concerned for the souls of Americans, who think the most important thing is how much money they are making, how much influence they have, and how much they are recognized for all they do. This bent towards self-interest and awareness is a distraction from what should be the most important – the wealth and status of our souls.
Even if our culture encourages a “me first” attitude, that is not what we are instructed to focus on. Matthew 6:33 says “Seek first the kingdom of God, and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.”
Are there things this country needs to change on a social, political, or economic level? I’m sure there are, but at the end of the day, all that matters is what we do with Jesus, and are we putting Him first? God help us all to get our eyes on Jesus. It’s not “me first”, its “Jesus first”. (Conviction fully in force on this end, I assure you.)
