Its counsel, however, is not just relevant to individuals, but to nations as well. Proverbs 14:34, for instance, is a truth that godly leaders have cited for generations: Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people." Patrick Henry, one of early America's most outspoken Revolutionary leaders, predicted that whether or not the newly formed United States would prove "a blessing or a curse will depend upon the use our people make of the blessings which a gracious God hath bestowed on us. If they are wise, the~, will be great and happy. If they are of a contrary character, they will be miserable. Righteousness alone can exalt them. as a nation." ~['~'~' .S ~"OUI The state of our nation today suggests we have strayed from God's wisdom. We - as individuals and J~S~S y ; corporately as a nation - must seek God and His righteousness if we are to continue in His grace. i I t
