They say when the heart stops, that person is clinically dead. When the heart stops loving, are they dead? When the heart gradually stops caring, are they dying? When the heart slowly stops hoping, has death crept into the lives of man?
In Proverbs 4:23, it says: “Keep thy heart with all diligence, for out of it are all the issues of life.” Out of the heart comes evil, hate, selfish-ambitions, drunkenness, revelries, contriving, lusting, greed, boastings, pride, envy’s and all other manners of sin. These are the things that lead to death; death of a man and death of a nation.
The things that keep the spiritual heart beating are: Love, long-suffering, caring, joy, peace, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, and self-control. These are signs of a healthy being, which can look forward to a long life. Morality is the life blood of a nation, it is the fluid that supplies the necessary nutrients required to maintain a healthy body. Without morality, life gradually slips away.
When our heart stops beating as a nation, when it stops its rhythmic pumping of morality, we will be clinically dead as a nation. There will be no more signs of life in our national limbs. No more detectable sounds of hope; not a hint of prayer.
Our nation is sick. It’s sinking quickly into a coma of despair, if something isn’t done soon, it may become too late. Viruses invading our system of laws contain copious amounts of regulations and edicts. No medicines will cure the ills of our society, only a transfusion of life-giving morality. Where do we look for such a cure; we look to its creator, Jesus Christ. He is the healer of our woes. Christ is the physician with the right medicine, and the right amount of doses, but we’ll never be the same nation.
We’ve been made weaker from the lack of life-giving morality, even if we’re cured tomorrow, a whole generations will suffer from our neglect of the body of this nation.
When the heart of a nation stops; can it be revived? Yes, with the power of Christ.
But, is it too late? We’ll soon see. Have a wonderful Sabbath!
