Apart from the LORD, all our endeavors are ultimately fruitless, no matter how sincerely we may labor to satisfy the needs and wants of a godless humanity. Regardless of our own efforts – even while we sleep – the LORD causes our crops to grow, our flowers to bloom, our plants to produce, our economies to thrive, if we live and work in full regard of “the laws of nature and of nature’s God.”
Each and every child, a blessing from God, is in fact our next generation, collectively to be duly responsible for the wholesome vitality of our future as a nation and ultimately as a civilization. They are to be entrusted with the civil structure and applicable laws that determine the direction of the changing culture each generation experiences and weaves into the fabric of an exceptional people who acknowledge the sovereign rule of Almighty God – the LORD of all Creation. Each generation needs to be armed with solid knowledge of how God works within our lives and relationships, and be able to contend with the errant ideologies that reject eternal truths and the LORD of all Truth.
