Love the Land of Lincoln

The shape of Illinois looks like President Abraham Lincoln wearing a beard with a graduation cap on, hence its called the Land of Lincoln. Plus, there is a car called Lincoln, must be named after him. As per graduation ceremonies go, you move the tassel from left to right to convey the message that you graduated. 

Abraham from the Bible means “father of many or a multitude.” As a President of his time, Abraham Lincoln was known as “Honest Abe” in the sense he never cheated anyone. Thus, he was elected President and sought to it to abolish the law of slavery. He was held to a high regard to free the slaves from captivity.

If you think carefully, who else would want you to be free from sin, bondage, and higher debt? It would be Jesus, He also paid the ultimate sacrifice so that we can be right with God our Father the Creator. 

He paid the ultimate penalty so as we die, we are not doomed to a lifetime in hell, but to be in heaven forever with him, isn’t that a better love story than what you see in the movies and TV these days?

    I didn’t know that about Illinois. It’s a very interesting perspective. remember reading once about Lincoln and according to the author, although he believed that slavery was wrong, at the same time he did not believe that Black people should have the same rights as whites. There’s a lot of controversy around him. Who is perfect, though?
    Regarding Jesus, I totally agree with you. He is the only One Who can save us from Hell and show us the way to the Father. Those words spoken by Jesus 2,000 years are still true today.

    Abraham Lincoln’s statement is correct. God is always right, and He loves us so much He made a way for us to be on His side.He sent His only begotten son Jesus that whoso believe in him should not perish but have everlasting life. Jesus paid the price for our sins. The wisest thing for any one to do is to be on the Lord’s side!

    Hello Angel, it’s so good to read about Abraham Lincoln here on your website. I have never really been to Illinois but didn’t know that it was called that because of the shape of the map. All the same, it’s good stuff to see this and also to know that he really was compassionate and really wanted to help a whole lot of people to stop slavery. Some presidents are not as enthusiastic about their people

      Dear Jay,

      Thanks for your Comments. I am most grateful for them.

      Well, as I am visually challenged and learn from it better than text, I figured that the state of IL looks exactly like President Abraham Lincoln with graduation cap. 

      Another thing is that the African Elephant got its name to be the way it is because the shape of the elephants ear. It is shaped like that of the continent Africa.

      It is very true in what you say. Not many Presidents show pride or enthusiasm for their country and its hard working citizens to keep the economy running for future generations to come.

    The whole point concerning Jesus is that most of us have heard it so many times that we have gotten used to it. The most beautiful story of love has become common ground to our generation.

    Gratitude should characterize our lives. A life without gratitude is a life without purpose. But it’s difficult to have a high sense of gratitude in the world we live until we turn to see Jesus on the cross. I deserved to be there and He died for me to set me free.

    Thank you so much for sharing with us a beautiful and informative article. The main content of this article is Love the Land of Lincoln. It is truly remarkable that you have presented this topic so well in your article. I have learned a lot by reading your article and gained a lot of knowledge about it. Of the points mentioned in your article, I like Thoughts/Concerns. Although I’m not familiar with Illinois, I would say that the brief introduction to Lincoln is really remarkable. Lincoln’s love for his country and his responsible role in running the country in the right way is not seen in many presidents today. In the present age, according to Abraham Lincoln, it is very difficult to find a president who will be just and patriotic.

      Dear Md. Asraful Islam,

      Thank you so much for your Feedback, I really appreciate it.

      Yes, President Lincoln is like no other, he lived in a time where the people of USA were being enslaved, and he fought to do something about it. Lincoln cared about the people more than himself. He is probably ranked as being the number 1 President of his time because he served the people not let people serve him, big difference.

    Hi, Angel,

    I didn’t know that about Illinois. It’s a very interesting perspective.

    I remember reading once about Lincoln and according to the author, although he believed that slavery was morally wrong, at the same time he did not believe that Black people should have the same rights as whites. There’s a lot of controversy around him. Who is perfect, though?

    Regarding Jesus, I totally agree with you. He is the only One Who can save us from Hell and show us the way to the Father. Those words spoken by Jesus 2,000 years are still true today.

    Thanks for sharing. God bless you.

      Dear Enrique,

      Thanks so much for your Comment.

      Actually, it came to me like in a vision or dream on why the state of IL is shaped the way it is, and how the phrase Love the Land of Lincoln came to be. 

      No one is perfect, only God is, but it is with us, whose side do we decide to be on, God is Good, Devil is evil. I would rather stay on the side of good because good plays fair, it does not cheat or do a quick method, good thinks of the cause of effect, what would my actions do for me versus if I do onto others. A ripple effect like one where you throw a stone in a pond.
