By Lynette Kittle

“It’s for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand agency, then, and don’t let yourselves be burdened once more by a yoke of slavery” – Galatians 5:1

Though some Americans could not really feel a lot gratitude for our nation in its current situation, we need to view it with grateful hearts, treasuring how God divinely established this nation in freedom. As 2 Cor. 3:17 explains, “Now the Lord is the Spirit, and the place the Spirit of the Lord is, there may be freedom.”

No matter how some really feel about our nation’s current state, 1 Thessalonians 5:18 urges us to “Give thanks in all circumstances; for that is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” Particularly as Christians to acknowledge that God is the writer of freedom.

The one means they’ll inherit the liberty we now have identified is that if we combat for it, shield it, defend it, after which hand it to them with the well-taught classes of how they of their lifetime should do the identical. And should you and I do not do that, then you definitely and I could effectively spend our sundown years telling our youngsters and our youngsters’s kids what it as soon as was like in America when males have been free.” 

For America’s freedom to endure, it’s important for us to cross on real, heartfelt gratitude for it by first thanking God and, secondly, by recognizing what it takes to take care of it. As Proverbs 15:22 explains, “Plans fail for lack of counsel, however with many advisers, they succeed.”

Proverbs 13:22 urges mother and father to go away an inheritance to their kids. Educating our youngsters and their kids to be grateful for America’s expensive freedom is important and a priceless reward. Taking the time to cross on gratitude for it to our households is effectively value our time. A key to oldsters passing on gratitude for America to future generations is by instance, expressing it ourselves, and researching, finding out, and understanding its wealthy historical past.
