REFLECT: And improve nation

Print Article

The day after Labor Day is almost like another New Year’s Day, full of many new beginnings. It is also a good time for us to reflect on our personal lives.

Our first priority is our relationship with God. Examples of events in the lives of God’s people in ancient times were given to help us with our problems and life choices. (Rom. 15:4, I Cor. 10:11)

During the last days of the kings of Judah (627-586 B.C.), the prophet Jeremiah lamented over the nation’s persistent rebellion against God. Each year the nation became more sinful, ignoring the call to repent and come back to the Lord. Jeremiah wrote, “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.” (Jer. 8:20). Let not this be said of us.

Secondly, consider all the opportunities to improve and build up our community and country. Even though ominous signs point to some disastrous consequences coming to America, we should not give up and declare all is hopeless. We are thankful for all the hard workers who provide products, services, protection and instruction to keep our society functioning. Americans before us also formed many local organizations and service clubs that enrich our lives. Reality reveals that without volunteers and funding, many of these organizations cannot continue.

Before this summer ends on Sept. 22, may I encourage you to trust in Christ. Also consider selecting a church and a community group to join to work with others to improve our country.
