There has been an eerie hush about Reconciliation Day. One of the duties of a leader is to lead. Was there a greater time when we needed our leaders to step forth and remind America of Reconciliation Day? When its citizens start murmuring and complaining about symbols, street names, park names, and historical figures that are reminders of the slavery era, there should have been a reminder that Virginia has acknowledged its faults and asked for forgiveness. Forgiveness was granted and there is a statue of two embracing symbolizing reconciliation. Where were our leaders during all of the protest and riots? This was dereliction of duty on a monumental or massive scale.
This is a critical time in America’s history. It’s time for an awakening. If we have decided that we are going to murmur and complain until things are perfect then our nation is going to be destroyed by its own people. Things are not going to be perfect because we are not perfect. No one is perfect. Do we throw away a whole bushel of apples because of a few bad ones? NO! We weed out the bad ones. This is not like the 60’s. The laws are now in place for every citizen to succeed. It’s time for America to work on its HEART. This a new era. The year of 2020 has been a wake up call to get real with our faith. “Papa don’t take no mess” I don’t know the papa that the ‘Late James Brown’ had in mind but the Papa I am referring to is our heavenly Father. God is patient. But His patience does run out if we continually don’t correct our ways.
