Our failures can point us to salvation

I would like to add something to the discussion of values.

Many think we are on a death march, as tried-and-true values and traditions are thrown overboard. I recognize points of multiculturalism, diversity and differing opinions and the like, but there is a principle in the word of God that says the guilty flee when no one pursues them.

I believe that while we have free will and can choose contrary ways of all kinds, and because we have a fallen nature, we can end up spooked by our own dark ways and feel trapped and hopeless.

A remedy may be available in returning to the ancient landmarks, as it says in Proverbs. We, as a nation, can come to our senses as the prodigal son in the pig sty did. Maybe revisiting the old Ten Commandments can stop us in our tracks toward destruction.

The good news is, our failures can point us to the Savior. The future can still be glorious.
