This was a Bible verse and commentary of
another Karen's Korner - #2503 on February 6,2013.
"Where there is ignorance of God,
crime will run
but what a
wonderful thing it is
for a nation to
and keep His
~ Proverbs 29:18
Commentary: "These proverbs were written under a monarchy.
If the king was law-abiding, the people tended to follow suit. In a
democracy, the people themselves are the leaders. When they turn to a
standard higher than themselves and keep God's moral laws, the nation becomes
strong. When everyone does whatever seems 'right in their own eyes'
(Judges 17:6), the nation becomes weak and can no longer effectively
protect its citizens. We should not be ashamed of our high moral
standards - they make our country a better place."
