"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal." These words from Abraham Lincoln's Gettysburg Address are the foundation for this short book to deepen your understanding of our American heritage.
Consider these first words of the Gettysburg Address. For many, they comprise a mere introduction to the famous speech by Abraham Lincoln. Yet, taken on their own, they have a profound meaning. They speak to the actions and sacrifices of the Founding Mothers and Fathers, based on the concepts of Liberty and Equality. In this one sentence, Lincoln demonstrates the inspiring wisdom and humanity of our Founders.
Such wisdom and humanity appear to be lacking today. As you turn these pages, our Founders will indeed speak to you about the three concepts addressed by Lincoln - Liberty, our Country's Founding and Equality. For you, their voices will comprise an American Devotional. Devotionals are a wonderful gift to deepen people's Faith, as they take their walk through a difficult life path. They often consist of daily or weekly inspirational words on which people should dwell. Through such an intense focus on a periodic basis, persons can obtain comfort, joy or a positive direction for their lives. Often based on the Bible, the words contained in Devotionals enhance both spiritual growth and religious depth.
This Devotional is a little different. While most Devotionals aspire to deepen your relationship with God, this weekly Devotional employs the words of the wonderful people of which Lincoln spoke to deepen your relationship with this wonderful country they established. In so doing, the aim is not to produce a blind patriotism, but, rather, a thoughtful love and devotion to the United States of America, based on Liberty and Equality.
Considering that you lead a busy life, this Devotional contains 52 passages, one for each week of the year. ...
