What is the state of the "heart of our nation"? We are witnessing the following: attack on voting rights, attack on public education, attack on the expansion of Medicaid, inequalities in our judicial system, attack on the food stamp program, attack on immigration, attack on labor rights, attack on a fair tax system, attack on Medicare, attack on Social Security, attack on people of race, culture, and religion, attack of human rights.

These attacks come because the heart of our nation has become about us being prideful, selfish and greedy. The above attacks are symptoms of the state of our hearts.

Jeremiah 17:9: The heart is deceitful above all things, desperately sick; who can understand it? Jeremiah was a prophet in the Old Testament of the bible.
