John Piper offers a stunning perspective of the simultaneous might and mercy of our God illustrated by two recent events which gripped the heart of our nation.  I’ll give you one paragraph, but you really must go read the whole piece:

The “miracle on the Hudson” and the “miracle in the White House” are not unrelated. God has been merciful to us as a nation. Our racial sins deserved judgment a thousand times over. God does not owe America anything. We owe him everything. And instead of destruction, he has given us another soft landing. We are not dead at the bottom of the Hudson.
