God and Government

From Kelly Wright in God and the government slimdown

The Bible instructs all of us to pray for our leaders. I sincerely pray that you are able to live as successful and wise public servants.  “And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God. “ – Micah 6:8

The prophet Micah was urging Israel’s leaders to be mindful of their high calling of service. He made the urgent plea to address the fact that leaders were governing with injustice, unkindness and pride...

Mahatma Gandhi once challenged politicians with an impassioned plea for them to understand that we are confronted by seven deadly sins:
Wealth without work
Pleasure without conscience
Science without humanity
Knowledge without character
Politics without principle
Commerce without morality
Worship without sacrifice.”
It’s time for a change. Now is the time for all of us to humble ourselves, turn from our selfish ways, seek God’s direction and pray that our nation will be transformed from Red States and Blue States into a United States.

God Bless America…God Save America!
