Proverbs 19:20 Listen to advice and accept instruction, that you may gain wisdom in the future.
Today I just want to address an issue (as a Veteran myself) that seems to be creeping up in some of our countries. First of all is our world perfect? Of course not, are there issues out there that need to be addressed? Of course there are. The problem is we need to find the right ways to address them, and causing controversial situations is not one of them. Once again the media has been fed and now we see people not giving respect to the flag of our country. Sad to say once again yes there are issues that need to be addressed but there is a time and place for everything. We are so quick to sit because of the negative; my question is when are we going to Stand for the Positive? There are so many positive things that people can stand up and show respect for but yet we take a small handful of important issues and base our opinions on that and take action that ends up causing hurt, frustration, and disrespect. We for example have soldiers out there fighting for our freedom, Veterans who have served so we could be where we are right now who honor our flag. Over 1.1 million American Men and Woman have died since the first war, many of which had our flag laid on their casket if their bodies were even found. The flag represents more than just some people’s behaviors in our country. It’s time to think before we say and do things. Look for the positive in things around you and pray for the Lord to give you wisdom when it comes to addressing important issues. We must as a Nation join together and stand up for what is Right…. The Right Way. Represent where you are at and for those of you who have a relationship with the Lord, please represent Christ the way He would want you to so that the World will want to get to know Him. God Bless You and Yours!!
Remember Stand for Positive Reasons and Pray about how to handle the negative ones. God will bless you greatly for it!
