Historical Weekend Wisdom: Nations Wounds

I find it amazing how quotes from well over 100 years ago are relevant today.

We have some gaping wounds that need bound up with staples, stitches or Band-Aids. I unfortunately see a lot of malice but little charity and little binding up of our wounds. Instead as if we are taking a sledge hammer or wrecking ball to our country.

Praying we can start to bind up the nation’s wounds soon, very soon.

With Malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the nation’s wounds.

Abraham Lincoln

May this quote speak to you.

God Bless You and God Bless The USA!

Weekend Wisdom: Charity vs Investment

Today’s quote comes from a new book I am reading – The Conservative Heart by Arthur C. Brooks.

It is an absolutely wonderful quote and the truth. In order for poor people to rise about their circumstances, the rest of us need to invest time and energy into helping them. There are numerous ways you can help poor folks and I will leave it to you to use your imagination and figure out how to invest in the poor.
