Well, we are in our second week of political overload. I am watching the speeches with interest. And I think my blood pressure is rising! But then I turn to the scripture and am reassured stat God is in control. We are bombarded with verbiage – and much of it eloquent – about a variety of issues. Many issues. Most important, some very important and others critical. It is my job as a citizen to decide which are which. The temptation is to focus on those that are important to ME?
However, I need to think, not necessarily nationally or globally but biblically. How does scripture inform our politics? How does it inform me? I have to ask questions like: how does God think about debt? Would He have us mortgage our children’s future? How does God view the unborn? How does God view Israel and Jerusalem? How does He view the poor? How does He think about work? How does He view national defense and border security?
God’s Word has much to say about our current issues and dilemmas. Rather than listen to the many pundits and talking heads, let’s read God’s word and measure things by His standard. We’ll be a lot safer.
When we honor Him, He will honor us.
