Today is Election Day in the United States of America.
We will elect the President of the United States along with other national, state, and local offices. As we prayerfully await the results, consider a lesson from history.
In the 1830s, French author, Alexis de Tocqueville, toured the United States and later reflected about his experience. He wrote:
I have toured America, and I have seen most of what you offer. I’ve seen the richness of the fields and the wealth of your mines. I’ve seen your industrial might, the beauties of the rivers, the streams, the lakes, and the grandeur of the mountains. I’ve noticed the abundance of the forests and the marvelous climate with which you are blessed.
In none of these things did I see the cause for the greatness of America.
It wasn’t until I went into your churches that I saw the reason for America’s greatness. America is great because America is good; and as long as America is good, America will be great. If it ever ceases to be good, it will cease to be great.
Today, let us pray for our nation.
May God bless America, land that we love.
