Greece. The third world power in the history of the world. Their reign of world domination was just before the coming of Christ. They lasted just over 300 years as the top dog before Rome took over. Their research and development was second to none. They made a blueprint for the first steam engine among other things. Yet they, like all world powers, fell to the next world power. I got to thinking about us. (America) Do I need to worry about the USA? What may happen to our super power status. Should I plunge into the political arena and worry about stupid policies being made? With the now famous phrase "What Would Jesus Do?" I will try and answer. If Jesus were walking around here today as he was 2000 years ago I say he would be thinking about people not governments. This thought hit me recently and it changed my perspective on the current situation we as Americans find ourselves in. So here is my challenge to myself. Don't worry about the ignorance known as our government. Be about the people living near me. Don't worry about whether my children will know the America I grew up with as far as being a super power. Instead try and make America a place that resembles our future home as believers in Jesus Christ. After all this is but a temporary home for us. Treat it as one.
