The Road to Recovery

Jan 2013 - Feb 2013

Unemployment is up. Stocks are down. Everybody is pointing fingers. If you are like most Americans, you’re wondering what’s going on in Washington. And you’re probably wondering what you’re supposed to do while you wait for somebody to fix things. Well, here’s an idea. What if we don’t wait around for somebody else? What if we go ahead and start fixing it ourselves? What if “We the People” tried to get this country on the road to recovery?

We can be a nation that makes interest or that pays interest. The choice should be obvious. Yet, somewhere along the way, our national perspective on that choice changed. Debt used to be a burden of the poor. Now it's a "tool" used by everyone from the richest to the poorest. In this message, Bobby reminds us of God's financial wisdom —wisdom that has been in the bible for 2,000 years. Maybe now is the time to start listening.

In God We Trust. Or do we? It's our national motto. But is it still true? In this message, Bobby challenges the nation to change our rhetoric and declare our dependence on Almighty God —like King Solomon did, like Abraham Lincoln did, like our nation's founding fathers did. Recovery needs God's blessings and favor. And blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.

What can we expect from the private behavior of our public figures? And should candidates' personal integrity affect our votes? In this message, Bobby introduces us to "moral authority" and an Old Testament leader who had a great deal of it. When we step into the voting booth, a candidate's moral authority may just be his or her most important qualification for the task of leading our national recovery.

Should our nation's recovery take its cue from 12-step recovery programs? In this message, Bobby introduces us to a step we should all take—a step that starts with me, not you. A national recovery just might begin when Christians stop policing others and start owning and recovering from our own issues.

How can a nation with this much wealth have a financial crisis? No matter who you ask —Republican or Democrat— the other side has caused our nation's problems. In this message, Bobby uses a familiar Bible passage to remind us that Jesus called on us to stop pointing fingers … and start looking in the mirror. We may have more power to start the recovery than we know.
