Have you ever dozed off and imagined yourself somewhere where people obsessed over things that didn’t really matter, then you realized you weren’t dreaming at all, but instead we just in America?

America is the land where we obsess about attaining someone else’s false definition of beauty, stress over trying to get rich with the goal of impressing people we don’t like, and where we care more about looking good than doing good. This is the American dream.

I understand why people go off the grid by leaving society, and do their own thing off in the wilderness or desert. This place can be a bizarre place to call home.

God only gives us a set number of days and we shouldn’t waste our time worrying about what others think about us, which is one of America’s biggest problem.

Who cares what others think?
You shouldn’t.

Americans love to say that America is the best place to live and everyone in the world is jealous of us. Again, why the heck do we care if people are jealous of us? Are we that insecure and foolish?

America has too great of a history to be what it is today. American heroes of the past would be disappointed at where we are at today.

We need to change things.

We need to stop our fixation with caring so much about what people think about us.

Live for Christ, not the crowd.

People will come and go, but Jesus remains. Therefore, our focus should be on pleasing Him, not others.

Wake up, America.
