To the editor:

I want to share two Bible passages that put the finger on the American Dream if we would harken to God's Word: First, Joshua 1:8, "This book of the Law shall not be forgotten. You shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to act in accordance with all that is written in it, for then you shall make your way prosperous and then you shall be successful."

Second, Psalm 1:1-3, "Happy are those who do not follow the advice of the wicked, or take the path that sinners tread, or sit in the seat of scoffers; 2, but their delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law they meditate day and night. They are like trees planted by streams of water, which yield their fruit in its season, and their leaves do not wither. In all that they do, they prosper."
