God Built That! (August 29, 2012)

“You didn’t build that! Somebody else made that happen!”

President Obama’s quip about small business will be a recurring theme at the Republican convention in Tampa with the counter-message being that hard-working people make their own success

But perhaps both sides have missed an important point.

Many years ago Abraham Lincoln gave Americans this solemn warning, “We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. … But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us ….”

Lots of people have worked very hard to make our nation successful, but let’s not forget that when we look at what’s been built, we ought to remember the words of another great leader, Moses, when he said “…remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth.”
