It is the USA’s 240th birthday and I’m finding myself wanting to share some famous words by some equally famous people. I find it interesting that the words of leaders of the past resonate so strongly with the circumstances and situations of current events.
It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible. ~George Washington
Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side, my concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right. ~Abraham Lincoln
When you have read the Bible, you know it is the word of God, because it is the key to your heart, your own happiness, and your own duty. ~Woodrow Wilson
Make sure that you are doing what God wants you to do, then do it with all your strength. ~George Washington
The Lord prefers common-looking people, that’s why He made so many of them. ~Abraham Lincoln
Piling up material goods cannot fill the emptiness of lives which have no confidence or purpose. ~Jimmy Carter
If your actions inspire to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader. ~John Quincy Adams
The rights of man come not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God. ~John F. Kennedy
Each day millions of our citizens approach our Maker on bended knee, seeking His grace and giving thanks for the many blessings He bestows upon. us. ~George W. Bush
The foundations of our society and our government rest so much on the teachings of the Bible that it would be difficult to support them if faith in these teachings would cease to be practically universal in our country. ~Calvin Coolidge
As you read these words know that throughout the history of the USA God has placed people in leadership at the right time and the right place. He will do so again!
Blessings to you and yours!
