In earlier lessens we have disonssed how wo should pray for our nation, and what we should do for tha recovery of the spirit ofouruatlon. Obadiah suggests where (o begin. . There is a nobla pride which , every patriot slwuld possess. Contemplating all his country has given liiin, this very pride of country,, however, should • make him hurnble of spirit. But is another son of pride - a pride which is arrogant and isolationist. It is this lype of pride with which the book of Obadiah is concerned. When Israel returned from the slavery of aibytoii, their cousins of LjJom treated them cruelly. Edom did nothing to help in their misery, and actually blocked the way of escape when they were fleeing from their aiemies, so tlut hosts of them were slain. This cruelty aroused Dbadiali to denounce national pride, and to declare mighty lidmn under the , judgment of God and to be -. destroyed With a perverse blindness through the ages man lias assumed there exists such a thing as national security. ^Putting his trust in power and foro*, he has sought to gain it. No nation is invulnerable. Wtetory reveals to the most casual observer that despite wealth and power no nation ever aiMined lasting security.- witness the fact that th*. dynasties of Rome, Greece, Egypt, Assyria, Russia and China marched in pomp before the face of Almighty God. and then marched off the stage into oblivion. National pride brings no. enduring life — but only - diah Indicates pride did not prompt Edom to any oven evH -• she was simple a guilty bystander,' striving for no good will. Neutrality may be possible in political life; but there can be none in the moral World. In the creating of public opinion, a nation must take sides. We, in America, are members of perhaps the greatest nation oa earth. We are therefore placed in 4 position where we cannot hide our shortcomings. We indulged in aggression when undertaking both the Mexican and Spanish-American War. America did not make the slums of Old Delhi, in India in which 50.000 families dwell in appalling squalor. But we turned a deaf ear when our Ambassadors urged aid for this country in its fight for democracy. Instead, we have done much for neighboring Pakistan, which has become a dictatorship. °ur government has recognized the government of, Guatemala, which "shot its way to power." Toooften we favored Batista. whose corruption cursed the common man of Cuba. We have befriended the tyrants of Saudi Arabia and Spain, , , : Obadiah indicates apathy' to immoral" ' haTIbnlt : :' conduct" comes from national pride and brings out the worst in one's neighbors.

Destruction by a "poor 1 nation could be the result of ourpride. Not so long ago a cultured and well-educated college graduate was visited and invited to Join the church. His conscimce would not permit him to take such a step. In World War 11 he served withacompany of men who came across a greup of old men. children, and pregnant women wishing to surrender.
