In an increasingly ungodly America, God’s people can choose to run around in a panic like chickens with our heads cut off. Or we can remember that God is a God that works for His glory always, take refuge in Him, and walk His paths no matter what. The Psalmist provides us with a fabulous prayer to offer as God’s people in the midst of rebels.
No doubt there are numerous cultural setbacks to having a biblically based family here in America. We could talk about entertainment and the media. They’ve definitely caused a setback. We could talk about prosperity and materialism. That is killing American families. We could talk about the sexual revolution since the 60s. Wow! I’m sure it shocks you that I don’t think that one is the #1. But I was thinking about Proverbs 31 the other day and the #1 cultural setback became crystal clear to me. It may surprise you.
