HAGELIN: Respect God and have reverence for his name
Question of the Day
We also have a right to expect that our leaders will use the “bully pulpit” to rebuke the mudslingers who spew hatred at believers under the cover of art, entertainment or comedy. Otherwise, our constitutional guarantees of religious freedom soon will shrink to protect only our private worship, within the four walls of our homes or churches.
What should you do? Two things.
First, when nonbelievers throw mud, don’t just clean up and go home. Call city hall. Use your voice and let our leaders know you expect them to speak out in defense of the rights of believers.
Second, have reverence for the name of God. Too often we Christians fail to show respect for our God, thoughtlessly or disrespectfully saying his name. That’s a change we can — and should — make right now.
As Christmas approaches, let’s bring glory to God, keeping in mind the words of Psalm 8: “Lord, our Lord, how majestic is your name in all the earth!”
