i can’t help but be grateful for the government. it has done so much FOR me that i can’t really fathom it all. its taken me 21 years to even take it all in, and yet i still barely have a grasp on it.
however, on the flipside of this, the government has done so much TO me that its something of a feat that i have come this far.
so i, we, find ourselves, quite frequently, i believe, in this tug of war of ideologies. on this fence between loyalty and revolt.
it has done so much and therefore we owe it so much,
it has done so much and
nothing only One can make it right again.
i long for the day when the Righteous God of Heaven and Earth will shine forth His glory and reveal to us the perfection that so many earthly institutions and figures have strived for. i would wager that such glory will be infinitely more than enough to draw me into eternal praise and worship.
