Norberto is now a US citizen, a real “yankee doodle dandy”, as I now like to call him! (he hates that). As Norberto pledged his allegiance to the U.S. and to lives its values in his every day life, we can’t help but think about our allegiance as Christians.
What does it mean to pledge allegiance to the cross? What oath do we take to serve God, and help to give liberty and justice for all? Not only being an American requires allegiance, but also we should show allegiance as citizens of God’s kingdom. How are we showing our true colors for Christ?
