R-Rated Religion would like to wish everyone a blessed 4th of July. Take the time today to get off social media, fellowship with your family, and give tribute to the United States of America. Take the time today to thank a veteran for their service and use this holiday to put aside any grievances. Do not forget your God! Give thanks to the Lord for America or for any country that you may live in. As Christians, we are tasked “to give thanks in all things, for that is the will of God” (1 Thessalonians 5:18). Giving honor to the creation of a country can be a global holiday for all the saints. We honor God by honoring His divine providence in that we acknowledge we are right where He has placed us: “The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps” (Proverbs 16:9 ESV). Happy fourth of July and Godspeed.
