God And The Nations v2 3 Righteousness Exalts A Nation 1
What is the most important factor for a nation to endure and prosper? Military strength? Diverse population: Strong economy?: The bible says that righteousness exalts a nation and sin disgraces it. Proverbs 14:34. God and now Jesus judges the nations according to righteousness, how God would have them to behave. For a nation to be righteous before God, it must acknowledge God as Creator and the Ruler of all nations. It must also practice justice for all, punish evil including the use of the death penalty when called for in cases of murder and other violent crimes. A nation must also promote morality for all its people instead of pornography, drugs, gambling, easy divorce of r easy reason, homosexuality and many other sins. Let us be thankful the Jesus is in control of the nations and let us seek to live righteously according to His Word and teach others to do the same.
