Nation Building is very much like the sport my college organization used to play a lot (well, one of many). Volleyball. In this sport, winning is only possible if all of the three key players of the team play well together.

Defends. Guards. Stabilizes.
Nation Building’s Equivalent: Justice.

By justice a king gives a country stability, but those who are greedy for bribes tear it down. Proverbs 29:4 NIV


Sets the pace. Sets the attack. Sets the game.
Nation Building’s Equivalent: Righteousness.

Just like the setter who sets the ball up in the air for the attack, righteousness is what brings a nation up. It serves as the nation’s foundation. Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. Proverbs 14:34 ESV


Attacks. Advances. Thrills.
Nation Building’s Equivalent: Wisdom. Without wisdom and competence, there will be no economic growth, no advancement and no progress.

Without wise leadership, a nation falls; there is safety in having many advisers. Proverbs 11:14 NLT
