America is corrupt.
It’s not just big business or crooked politicians. People are power hungry, overwhelmed by greed. How can anything good come from people like this?
It seems America is headed for self destruction at every turn. How can anything good come from hate, finger-pointing, or violence?
Does anyone even know where to turn? How can we find any peaceful answers to save our country?
The answer is that we re-discover love. We must look for love in each other. First we must see the love that is within ourselves. People who love the God of creation will restore this country and this world. We are called to be the voice of the Savior for all.
My reading today came in part from 1 John 5:1-9. We must love God and keep his commandments. “His commandments are not burdensome, for whoever is begotten by God conquers the world.”
The people with power in our country are destroying this country. Hate runs through them, not love for one another. How can good rise up from all this hate? It can’t.
We all need to replace the animosity that poisons our heart against our fellow human beings. Do this by realizing the love that is from the Creator. True love can only come from God. God is the origin of real love, because God is the maker of all things, that includes us humans. He and his love is present in every one of us. We each have God’s presence within us, even if we haven’t realized it yet.
Love is already in us. Love can, and must, win over all hate.
Are you ready to find love? Pray to God and believe in his love!
