What Makes A Great Nation?

If you were the leader of the free world, what would you do to make the nation great?

It’s not an easy job.

There are laws to inforce, borders to protect, defending freedom, maintaining peace, helping the needy, defending lives, implementing a fair tax and inspiring companies to earn a fair profit - and the list goes on.

King Solomon once said “Doing what is right makes a nation great, but sin will bring disgrace to any people.” (Proverbs‬ ‭14‬:‭34‬ ‭NCV‬‬)

I think it’s safe to say that if we honor God and don’t sin, our nation would become great. However, how does that play out?

Solomon said “if we do what’s right” the nation will be great. I think most would agree that this is true for one person, a household, a city and of course a nation.

However what is right? That’s where many divide.

I believe instead of focusing on the Republican thing or the Democrat thing, maybe we should focus on the “Right Thing”.

So where do you get your right and wrong from? As Solomon implies, sin is opposite from right. So what is right and what is sin?

Doing right can mean defending by war, or calling for peace. There is a moral code and God has clearly prescribed it in his word. However, implementing God’s code creates issues with those who disagree.

Doing the right thing as a nation is quite simple, while some decisions are excruciatingly difficult. The biggest movement, should start with ourself.

As each person commits to honoring God and loving others, things begin to fall in place, not only in our life, but the lives of others. Together, with everyone doing right, our nation will stay great.

GOD, help me do what is right and encourage others to do the same. Help me not to judge, but to help. Give us your help please and may we all do our part of making our nation great. IJNIP amen ♥️`
