Your post says it all. Every day I wake up and there is a new battle to be fought.
I gotta tell you, I’ve been pretty demoralized by it all lately. When I meet extended family members at a reunion and they tell me about all the benefits they’re getting (with no intention of ever getting married ‘cause they’d lose their lucrative checks), or I hear “friends” brag about how they’ve defrauded their insurance companies by padding their claims. I’m like, “Why even bother trying to live right?” Working hard, saving, trying to be self reliant? Why bother? The takers outnumber us, and they’re getting away with it!!!
At least I know I’m not alone. Believe me. A lot of other Americans are asking themselves the same sorts of questions. The productive folks must be getting tired of all the monkeys riding Uncle Sam’s back. Right? Regardless, I’ll try to do right because it IS right.
Dear Lord, please share Your strength, and guide our course.
