What Will Make America Great Again?

What will make America great again?

If you were to poll a group of parents and grandparents from across our country with this question, how do you think they would respond? The variety of answers would probably be shocking. It is evident the tactics used by society are not working. The homes across America are in trouble. Families are being torn apart. Our nation has lost it's moral, ethical, and spiritual bearings. We have found ourselves seemingly powerless to change our drift into further darkness.

Why can't the greatest scientific, medical, and psychological minds figure it out? The answer has been available to us all along and it pertains to our homes. The greatest resource for parents and government was produced long before the trouble began. It is the Bible!

In Exodus, chapter 20, we have recorded for us what is commonly known as the Ten Commandments. The first four have to do with our relationship with God. The fifth commandment, the very first commandment that is given to help us live among men is in verse twelve, " Honour thy father and thy mother..." This is repeated again in the New Testament in the sixth chapter and second verse of Ephesians. It even records for us a promise from God that we will " live long on the earth" if we obey this law.

The very first thing that God says should be in place in our home is honour for the parents. Do your children know this? Are you teaching them this promise? Are you as adults keeping this commandment towards your parents? We never outgrow the obligation of honour.

With God's help and His Word to guide us, there is hope for the future.
