“The historical cycle seems to be: From bondage to spiritual faith; from spiritual faith to courage; from courage to liberty; from liberty to abundance; from abundance to selfishness; from selfishness to apathy; from apathy to dependency; and from dependency back to bondage once more.” — H.W. Prentis, Jr.
Unfortunately, as an individual, I believe I have dropped to somewhere between selfishness and apathy. As a nation, it would appear we are closer to dependence and bondage.
Where are you, and what are you going to do about it?
