Some cities do very well, but they lose their zeal for righteousness and eventually reject the Lord who had exalted them. Consider what Jesus said of Capernaum,

“And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven, will be brought down to Hades” (Luke 10.15). 

What is Capernaum today? Some mighty cities of ancient times have vanished completely off the Earth, such as Nineveh, for its rebellion against the God of heaven.

How is your city doing? Are you contributing to the glorification or the downfall of your city?
