Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right. (Abraham Lincoln, 16th president of the United States)

Today we remember Honest Abe on the anniversary of his birth. His integrity was demonstrated in the many wise remarks attributed to him. There were people on both sides of the Civil War that thought God must be on their side. Abe’s sound advice is to be sure we’re on God’s side—a good reminder of how important it is to know God.

I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation. (2 Corinthians 6:2)
