CLARITY – 5-28-18 The Best Line

CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 5-28-18

 

The Best Line

 

What’s Happening:  “It may be Memorial Day today, but President trump delivered a patriotic speech to the graduation of the U.S. Naval Academy Friday and what some think was the best line of his presidency to date (https://www.westernjournal.com/ct/trump-delivers-what-may-be-the-best-line-of-his-presidency-at-naval-graduation/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=newsletter-CT&utm_campaign=dailypm&utm_content=conservative-tribune). ‘You chase discovery and you never flinch in the eye of a raging storm. America is in your heart, The ocean is in your soul. The salt water runs through your veins. You live your life according to the final law of the Navy. The word impossible does not exist, because Navy never quits,’ Trump quipped.”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “After ‘little rocket man’, ‘fire and fury’ to Kim Jong-un, and, about the Iran deal: ‘that’s the worst deal ever’ …that may be saying something!”

 

Biblical Response:  “He is a master of branding and social media, but that was a formal speech.,.. still, do you praise the speech writer or the speech giver? In any case, those lofty words are an understatement of reality. We in America will enjoy our peaceful bar-b-cues and trips-to-the-lake in the freedom and abundance our brave men and women have purchased for us…by their sacrifice. We all say: THANKS!”

 

“Christians? We also are grateful. And, speaking of sacrifice AND great lines, how about these?  ‘For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes on Him shall not perish, but shall have everlasting life.’ (John 3:16) and ‘Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.’ (1 John 4:10).”

 

”Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, while we are grateful for the sacrifices of those who gave themselves for us, we do not lose sight that You have given us the best example in Your Son; in Jesus’ Name, amen.”   © Alan E.Sargent
