One nation under God

I am sure that most of you have heard about Hillary Clinton living in a $5 million home and about her husband being worth millions of dollars.

Well, this reminds me of back when I was working for Colonial Baking Company and was at one of my stops in Palmetto, Georgia. The owner of the service station was telling somebody about some man passing away and another man heard him talking about the man passing away.

The man got all excited and said, “What? you mean that rich man died?” The owner of the place said, “Yes, the rich die like everybody else.” The man then asked, “Well, how much money did he leave?” The owner laughed and stated he left it all. Many people who have climbed the ladder of success find that in the end their ladder was leaning against the wrong wall.

You see, many people fail to live a life where they enjoy God's presence. How many through history have conquered vast territories, built great works, written brilliant prose, earned immense riches, won worldwide fame, only to end up hating life? Without God, life can't help but be a disappointment.

I have watched those in high office down through the years and come to know most love the limelight and don't like the thought of losing their power.

We all know now about all the scandals coming out of Washington and that many that hold high office love only themselves and the almighty dollar. Shouldn't we cast some of these people out of power and seek people who are moral and love this nation, because it was founded as a nation under God?
