The title of this post were the words which began a great celebration for God’s people, who finally escaped the bondage of slavery to Egypt after 400 years. What a great day that was and what a beginning for God’s chosen people. Has there ever been in history a more persecuted people than the Jews?
All people crave and deserve liberty. Yesterday in America we celebrated our Independence Day. I read the entire Declaration of Independence yesterday. It’s short and easy to find by anyone who needs to be refreshed by that Sacred document.
One of my favorite parts of that document are found in the second paragraph: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness,…”
Then, the final sentence before the 56 signers signed the Document: “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”
That great Declaration was signed on July 4, 1776. We have a right and a duty to celebrate that sacred day.
Our great country has made some serious mistakes since the Great Declaration was penned and signed. That’s because it was written and carried out by humans who are all prone to mistakes. But throughout all the years since that Declaration, We have tried to address the wrongs. Look at our constitution with its many amendments.
Can anyone show me a better country than America? If you know of such a country, you should move there immediately. Even the very poor in America have it much better than the middle class in other countries.
How many people do you know without a home to live in with air conditioning, televisions, have a car, free education and health care, a guaranteed check or food stamps if unemployed; the list goes on.
If people do not like America, let them work to make it better. There are legal ways to do that without destroying a God-ordained nation.
“Those who are given much, much is required.” (I’ll make you work to find the source of that quote.)
Although we are all created equal, nobody can believe that all people will have equal outcomes in their lives. Some people work harder, educate themselves better, and seek better opportunities than others.
But overall, God Bless America.
God Bless You,
