daily word - patriot or nationalist?

Dale Cresap's picture

Do you know the difference between patriotism and nationalism? These are related concepts, but patriotism has a positive connotation and nationalism has a negative one. Patriotism is based in sacrifice. There is a cost to being a patriot and only those who have paid it can claim the term. You have seen this in practice. Nationalism is based in entitlement and anyone can claim it but it is not admirable. You have seen this also. You are a citizen of a country here on earth, but you are also a citizen of my heavenly Kingdom above. So are you a patriot in the Kingdom of God, or a nationalist?
