Seek God to get us through this time

Our national anthem was written during a battle and adopted as "Our National Anthem." Our flag was still there.

The NFL owners had a meeting, and even though standing for our anthem was a requirement then, now, it is not.

I guess they forgot who pays for their fields, equipment, salaries, etc. The little man. The simple people. Us.

Without sponsors, there will be no advertisements. Without fans, there will be no salaries.

If millionaires can disrupt our God and country so be it; that's their choice. However, we too have a choice. Stop buying, stop going, stop watching and supporting the NFL or any and all sports that devalue our God and nation. Our military matters.

Just one more thing. One more distraction. Each day is different, yet the same. It seems as though some people are against everything and for nothing. A nation divided will fall. We are not different.

We are the most blessed nation in the world, yet, we take it and everything God has blessed us with for granted.

We are destroying ourselves. Crime, violence. There has never been such a time as this in our lifetime.

God has given us one last chance. What we do with it is our choice. After all, we decide our destiny.

There are consequences to every decision we make. Right or wrong, we choose.

Life is God's gift to us. What we do with it is our gift to God. Life only comes around once. Therefore, make wise and Godly decisions. After all, our children will live by our choices, our examples.

Now, we have the trickle-down effect. Even grammar school payers are taking a knee to something they don't understand. We as adults don't understand. However, I know what I stand for and who I stand for: God and country. If we don't respect The One, we won't respect The Other. Seek God and His wisdom. He is the solution to every problem we will ever face.
