First Things First ~ September 1, 2020

“Put first things first and second things are thrown in. Put second things first and you lose both first and second things.”  C. S. Lewis

This month’s article is written by Bill McDonald, an Elder at Highlands. 

Which Candidates Does God Support?

“No, but I indeed come now, captain of the hosts of the LORD.” – Joshua 5:14

THESE are the times that try men’s souls.

The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.

Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.

(Thomas Paine, The Crisis No. I, 12/23/1776)

Thomas Paine penned these words in a time of great crisis in America. The Continental Congress had earlier that year declared independence from Great Britain, and the outmatched Continental Army was in the midst of a dual to the death with England’s finest troops. There is no way that Thomas Paine or the men who signed the Declaration of Independence could have known the ultimate outcome of their struggle. Nevertheless, they staked their future and based their calls to action on a faith in God’s providence for whatever the result might be.
