Say it with me: “the empire will end, and that’s okay…”

I love Italians, but I’m so glad that the Roman empire is over. I love the people of Iran and Iraq, but I’m so glad that Persia and Babylon no longer rule the world. I love Egyptians, but I’m really glad that I am no longer a slave to Pharoah. 

God loves the people of every nation, because he created them. However all of man’s empires will come to an end, and that’s OK. Empires end – not because we want them to, but because God brings them to an end. 

Say it with me: “The empire will end, and that’s okay…” Just because you hate the evil deeds of an empire of man (empires are violent by nature, because it takes violence to establish empire), doesn’t mean that you have hatred for the people of those nations.
