Peace and War

18D7F46F-E53A-4239-8FA4-8179CC2141A5“When a man’s ways please the Lord, he makes even his enemies to be at peace with him.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16:7‬ ‭ESV

As tensions rise and the threat of war seems eminent, I paused to think about when is war the right course of action. Our nation ignored the atrocities of the Nazis and the Axis Powers until Pearl Harbor was bombed. Now we have been ignoring the atrocities of Middle Eastern terrorists until recent targeted attacks. I hate war and long for Peace, but sometimes evil requires annihilation.

Our Future

D73F5F47-EBCF-49C0-A520-240537573623.jpegWhat does the future look like for our next generation? The national debt continues to grow rapidly, currently at over $21 T.
The Social Security Trust Fund will be broke by 2034. The cost of everything is escalating, including taxes. There is global pollution and climate changes, terrorism, starvation, wars, overpopulation. We are teaching our children anything goes, they are entitled to whatever they want, work is optional, any discipline is abuse and unacceptable, and someone else is always responsible.
Obviously we have to change this course by using common sense and rewarding good behavior. Individual freedoms must come with personal responsibility.
