Next Sunday, November 11, we will be celebrating child dedications. Family values are important to Christians for the family is the bedrock of civilization. The entire social structure is rooted in and grows out of healthy American families. Since today is an extremely important day regarding family values and the future of our children may be at stake, I thought I’d quote Billy Graham. He ran a full page add in most major American Newspapers including the wall street Journal. It says, “The legacy we leave behind for children, grandchildren, and this great nation is crucial. As I approach my 94th birthday, I realize this election could be my last. I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel. I urge you to vote for those who protect the sanctity of life and support the biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman. Vote for biblical values this November 6, and pray with me that American will remain one nation under God.”

Be sure to vote today but also take time to pray. I read a brief article this morning that held this paragraph:

At this country’s first meeting to form the Constitution, Benjamin Franklin stood and quoted Psalms 127:1 “Except the LORD build the house, they labor in vain that build it.” He then pleaded, “I therefore beg that hence forth prayers imploring the assistance from heaven, and its blessing on our deliberations, will be held in this assembly every morning before we proceed with business.” That was the start of inviting and including God’s direction in our fledgling nation’s government.
