If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.…However, if you do not obey the Lord your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come upon you… Deuteronomy 28:1, 15
In writing a patriotic piece for Fox News Online, I have been reflecting on the Memorial Service that was held three days after 9/11. My father was the principal speaker at The National Cathedral that was packed with national and international leaders and dignitaries. His message was riveting. He concluded by clarifying the choice that faced us as a nation: Would we implode and disintegrate emotionally and spiritually? Or would we rebuild on a solid foundation of faith in God? Fourteen years later, I’m left to wonder… how does America today reflect the choice that we made then? Could it be that the worst attack of all was not on the Twin Towers or the Pentagon or UA Flight #93 and a field in Pennsylvania? Could it be that the worst attack of all was on our nation’s foundation of faith in the living God?
The following three-minute video is of a Harvard Business School professor, Dr. Clay Christensen, giving a very sobering viewpoint of what happens when we as a nation forsake our foundation of faith. It’s worth watching. Then join me in asking God what we can do to rebuild our nation’s solid foundation of faith.
