This is the very first episode in Eric Ludy’s winter Daily Thunder series that dives into the unstable season of American history known as the Antebellum period (1815-1861).  It’s a season oddly similar to the season we now find ourselves in as a nation. We may not be Abe Lincoln, and we may never get the assignment of President of the United States, but that doesn’t mean we can’t find a similitude. Like Lincoln, we need to navigate a tumultuous age with wisdom and dexterity — learning to remain unspotted by the world and yet reach that world for Jesus Christ simultaneously. To do this, Lincoln learned to not draw hard lines but loving lines — a lesson of which each of us ought to take note. The 36’30 line was a hard line drawn by northern politicians that led to the Civil War. Meanwhile, the Cross was a loving line that, still to this day, leads to abundant life. Let’s draw our lines well.
