Presidents Day

Mount Rushmore National Memorial

What is the purpose of this national holiday in the USA? Presidents Day is marked to commemorate the birthdays of the first president, George Washington, and former President Abraham Lincoln. Presidents Day affords us an opportunity to pay tribute to all of the 45 presidents who have served this great country. Having a President should be approached much like the traditional marriage vows, “for better or for worse.” Some have been better and some have been worse. And it could be worse, much worse! Consider the alternative. A brief look at history or even the world conditions today shows what a terrible situation we would be in if it were not for the governmental structure of our Constitution that grants us a President to preside over the affairs of our country. But history also shows us that countries can, and do change, often for the worse. However, God tells us the way to preserve and improve our liberty is not by murmuring and complaining, but by praying and being thankful. “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior” (1 Timothy 2:1-3).

Prayers for the President and the nation.
