DailyRead-Art-wlogoReading:  Hosea 5:10
Judahʼs leaders are like those who move boundary stones. I will pour out my wrath on them like a flood of water.

 

Question: What invites God’s wrath like a waterfall?

Answer: Removing historical landmarks so that a generation slips her moral anchors.

Israel had forgotten God. Her leadership was culpable. Having thrown off moral restraint, the nation tottered on the edge of destruction.

Leadership is responsible for more than its visionary reach. Leadership is responsible to maintain the moral landmarks – reminders of who we are and how we got here. In recent years, a concerted effort has been made to remove the Christian landmarks from America’s history. The rise of pluralism has been marked by a downgrading of Christianity; from a dominant and driving force, to an insignificant historical footnote. Some would have us forget that the majority of our founding fathers felt that our form of government was untenable except for its Christian underpinning. Should we now ignore the God that they so freely invoked, we shall cease to know His blessing and hasten to invite His wrath.

Without landmarks, we are lost. Without moral precepts, we have no basis for justice. Without truth, we have no rudder, nor compass. Without remembrance, we invite the repetition of barbaric atrocity.
