For your Maker is your husband; the LORD of hosts is his name; and your Redeemer the Holy One of Israel…
God is the God of all nations. The Bible says that He is the God of all the earth, and I suppose there are people enough in other nations besides our own to occupy a considerable part of His sympathy and heart and attention. Well, patriotism is a good thing, but when patriotism is the influence that separates us from the other nations of the earth, it is a very narrow, mean thing, it is only another name for selfishness.
(H. W. Beecher.)
