Since When?

I am sure we can all agree that America and all countries for that matter are information poor which leads to lack of leadership. It’s proven by the state of our society currently.

• Divorce rate is over 60%
• where the economy lies financially
• Laws being passed that are absolutely ludicrous (most of which Americans have no clue about) 40,000 laws passed alone in 2013
• Things not only accepted but welcomed that used to be a thing of sin, disgust, unaccepted, and forbidden.
• Never mind the freedoms being gladly handed over because we aren’t taking responsibility for the duties trusted to us by those that fought, sweated, sacrificed, and died for

These days, we don’t read books, listen to audios, stay up to date on our government and the decisions it’s making for us, and exercising our rights as Americans. The constitution used to be a sixth grade level of understanding when we were founded but now, most Americans need a dictionary to understand it if they have ever even read it.
What are we doing instead? Focusing on STUFF(as Chris Brady says)! Society tells us that we need the new clothes, shoes, cars, houses, and electronics just to fit in. There is nothing wrong with having those things as long as the critical matters are a high priority. The real issue is the fact that we will put that stuff on loan or credit just to look like we have it all. If we continue to be consumed with putting all our time and efforts to acquire STUFF and forget about the freedoms that give us the choice to strive after greater things, then soon those things won’t be in our reach. If we aren’t on purpose to keep the freedoms we have and get back ones we have lost, one day we won’t be fighting for the new thing…but our next meal. Freedoms aren’t free! I know right…crazy but true! We have to continually fight for those freedoms to have the option to have the STUFF!

So….
Since when did it become ok to worry more about ourselves than others?
Since when did it become ok to focus more on STUFF than the truly important things at stake, for not only us but our children and grandchildren?
Since when did it become ok to go into debt for things that are mainly to just impress other people?
Since when did it become ok to sit back and watch America continue to sink lower?
Since when did it become ok to let others tell us who we should or can be?
Since when?

Each and every one of us(not just Americans but all) are our own individual and have the right to not only exercise our rights and freedoms but to uphold them. We are a strong, courageous, loving, passionate, Godly nation that is founded on the greatest principles ever in our history and it’s time to stand up for them together.

Life Leaderships sole purpose is to help people see the truth of where we were, where we are, where we are going, and how to change our direction. I thank God that people are grabbing hold of the opportunity to spread truth to others and taking a stand for the things that truly hold value. Great things are ahead, it’s up to us to make sure we do our part. Our history is great but our future is still a question mark…what will we do to make sure that the ones after us have something to look back at and be proud of what we did today? My prayer is that after reading this, you don’t just say that was a good read but inspires you to take action and dig into our history, present and possible futures and want to take part in making it the best.

With Love

One thought on “Since When?”

  1. Yes, I do believe that the LIFE Leadership community is and will be on the cutting edge both presently and in the near future to preserve and advance our freedoms to love God and love others! I intend to continue to read, listen, and associate! Now to be more on purpose to give others the opportunity to do the same!
