God and Country

I love America. I believe it’s the greatest country in the world. There is nowhere else I would want to live. I’m thankful for the men and women who have sacrificed their lives for our freedom. But as great as our country is, we are not God’s chosen people nor are we some sort of city on a hill. Please don’t blend patriotism with theology. That never ends well.

God has undoubtedly blessed America. But not because we have done anything to deserve it. He has blessed us out of his abundant grace. May God continue to shed his grace on our country for centuries to come.
