In good times and bad times

Published: June 17, 2013

Is God only God in the bad times? If it's acceptable to pray in school when a tornado is bearing down, why isn't it acceptable when the skies are blue? If society will tolerate God's name being spoken aloud in faith and hope in the aftermath of disaster, why will it be more tolerable to take His name in vain once the crisis passes? If teachers can lead their children in singing “Jesus Loves Me” as a school building starts to blow apart, why can't they sing it on a calm sunny day? If we can publicly acknowledge God in the bad times, can we not publicly acknowledge Him in the good times?
