“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” – The Preamble to the United States Constitution
In a previous post, “What Is American?,” I wrote about American values. There is a remnant of Americans living in the United States today, the Posterity the Founding Fathers were talking about. I don’t know how many we are, but I know God has done amazing things with small numbers of people. Jesus Christ started with 12. Gideon and his 300 took Midian with the help of the Lord. – Judges 7
God is on our side. If we speak up and share our values, if we stand up and fight, we can hold our land.
But it’s not only today that matters; our American future matters even more. I want my posterity to have the freedom to live their lives like I had the freedom to live mine. I want my sons and daughters to live in a world where they can freely worship Jesus Christ, where they can speak truth in public. I want an American future where political leaders affirm Christian morals and values.
For that to happen, we need like-minded Americans to produce American posterity. We need Americans to have more children and raise them to love God and American values. I’m raising a few of my own, but we need more. The more American posterity, the merrier.
One of my favorite verses is from Psalm 127, “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth.”
Our time on earth is limited. We can make a mark on our day in our time, but the future is beyond our grasp. Our children, Lord willing, will have a lot more time after we’re gone. Our children are like arrows that we can shoot into that American future. If we have raised them well, they will hit their marks and make us proud.
To all my fellow Americans and Men of the West, we must fight in the present and also plan for tomorrow. Get married, have babies. Teach them what it means to be an American and a Man of the West. If you already have babies, have a couple more. If you can’t have more, adopt a couple. If you have grand babies, make it a point to teach them your values and remind your adult children why your culture and heritage is important.
If you think you can’t afford children, just know that no one can afford it. When you have kids, your priorities change and it becomes easier and easier to afford them.
If you think you don’t want children, just know that there isn’t much better joy in life than looking into the eyes of your laughing baby child. Children are a blessing. The love God puts in our hearts for our children is a symbol of the love He has for us. And it’s an amazing love.
One of my favorite movies is Raising Arizona. If you don’t know anything about the movie, go find it and watch it right now. Don’t read anything about it. Don’t research the plot. Just find a copy and watch it. You’ll love it.
The final scene is very special. I watch the movie pretty often, and I watch the final scene even more. If you don’t want a spoiler, then come back after you’ve watched the movie.
My prayer for myself and for all American and Men of the West families is that we sit at a table like this and look out on our posterity. My prayer is for children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren to fill our homes during the holidays. My prayer is that we pass on our values to tens, hundreds, thousands of posterity.
