Sweet land of liberty
United we stand
Proud to be an America
Home of the brave
The United States has many slogans by which we identify ourselves. It is a country unlike any other. We live in a land of abundance and prosperity, of freedom and independence. No wonder so many desire to cross our borders, either legally or not, to enter and remain here.
But if we do not look to the greater authority and sustainer of our country, we will not continue for too long. If we do not return our focus to the One on whom this country was founded, we will rapidly descend a slippery slope.
“In God We Trust” is more than a motto or phrase printed upon our currency. We must trust God if we are to see our country continue to receive divine blessing. We would do well to remember these words from Ronald Reagan:
“If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we will be one nation gone under.”
