The Prophet Daniel describes the Babylonian government as full of division, posturing, jealousy, covetousness, corruption, deceitfulness, and distrust…in other words much like how I imagine our nation’s government operates today. But Jesus, through his Sermon on the Mount, paints a much different picture of what is possible. One of hope, of unity, of peace, and of love. If we would just humble ourselves, confess our sinfulness to God, and turn toward Him, He would hear from heaven and heal our land. And then maybe, just maybe, we might become a more Grateful Society once again.
