I agree with what Elijah said about America telling everyone to follow their dreams, and in concept this seems selfish. Disney teaches kids to follow their dreams based solely on what they feel, yet as Christians, we should seek to follow God’s direction for our life, not based on how we feel nor on what others believe we should. I believe that God instills certain desires in our hearts that we are meant to pursue. Psalm 37:4 reads, “Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” In comparison to Plato’s ideal city, if we work to pursue the desires that God has instilled in us, we will not be a seemingly robotic nation of trained children, but we will be a strong nation striving to build God’s kingdom with our righteous, spiritual gifts.
