Patriotism Is Not Enough?

  • Peter J. Gomes


Once again I have taken as my text a passage from Scripture drawn from neither of the lessons that have been appointed for today, but one that links the two together and highlights the substance of the messages of the prophet Joshua and of the apostle Paul. I ask you to listen to this text from the book of the prophet Jeremiah as a hinge between these important lessons that we have had this morning: “‘Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, let not the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches; but let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth; for in these things I delight,’ says the Lord.” Those are the twenty-third and twenty-fourth verses from the ninth chapter of the book of the prophet Jeremiah.
