Are We There Yet?
A dear friend and brother in the Lord recently made the following comment on my blog, which should receive a broader reading. Thank you Rob:
My wife and I made a round trip journey of just under 700 miles yesterday to take our oldest daughter to church camp for a week. As is always the case when a family makes a journey of this nature, the most common refrain is “Are we there yet?”
Alexis De Tocqueville wrote in “Democracy in America”, “I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers – and it was not there . . . in her fertile fields and boundless forests and it was not there . . . in her rich mines and her vast world commerc – and it was not there . . . in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution – and it vas not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits flame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great.”
I sorrowfully ask “Are we there yet?”
