Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me; nevertheless not my will but thine, be done.

Lk 22:42

What does one do when the world spins out of control?  When leadership is corrupt and faithless?  Seeks for itself?  Fails to serve?  Destroys?  Abandons morality?  Endorses depravity?  Divides others on racial grounds?  On gender? Denies history?  God?  Invokes lies?  Misleads?  Is full of arrogance and conceit? Is faithless?

The answer is clear.  Seek, above all, to discern God’s will and to do it.

Does Christ not show us this in His Passion?  Are our instructions not clear?  Clear in His words?

You have your guidance.  Seek, then do – God’s will.

Only dead fish swim with the stream.

Shalom.

Footnote – For those who wonder if there were better times in America, if the culture was once whole and healthy, I suggest you pick up David McCullough’s John Adams and read just the very first chapter, if no more than that.

What you will find is this: our second President was, like his peers, a common and humble man, a man of modest means who faced hardship, a man of extraordinary character and faith, a good husband, family man and father, an honorable public servant, a man to be trusted throughout his life.

Yes, we have been a wonderful culture and a courageous nation guided by faith and faithful and humble leaders.  This is why I so often write of challenges today as I do.
