Rush Limbaugh receiving his Medal of Freedom. Melania Trump does the honors.
I am very sorry to report that Rush Limbaugh, 70, has died of cancer. We have lost a champion of the conservative cause.
As one of El Rushbo’s 40 million listeners, going back several decades, I learned a lot from him. I think the biggest eye-opener I got from him was the realization that government has no money of its own and creates no wealth on its own: it has only the wealth that we, the American people, create by working for it. Government can’t “give” anybody anything; it can only take from some to award to others–and very seldom justly, or wisely. Thank you for that insight, Rush.
We are at a perilous juncture in our nation’s history, and to lose Mr. Limbaugh now is to lose much.
But we still have our prayers, and I take some comfort from the thought that as his life drew to a close, Rush learned to lean more and more upon the everlasting arms of Jesus Christ Our Lord. I hope there’s another microphone waiting for him in Christ’s Kingdom.
Instructed by the Holy Spirit, Isaiah wrote, “The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth it to heart: and merciful men are taken away, none considering that the righteous is taken away from the evil to come. He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds, each one walking in his uprightness.” (Isaiah 57: 1-2)
I pray we aren’t there yet, and that the Savior will deliver us from the snares of the ungodly. But if we are, then I pray the Lord will give us faith, courage, strength, endurance, and wisdom. Because we shall need it, every drop of it.
