An Idea Borrowed

Years ago on a radio program someone shared that they read a chapter in Proverbs every day. Since there are 31 chapters and the longest month has 31 days it allows you to read through Proverbs on a regular basis. I use it as the launch pad for my personal worship time and branch out from there. On this blog I will try to share some of the insights I have in the Word. I will try to organize them in the archive by reference.

Minorities and Salt

(Pro 20:8 KJV) A king that sitteth in the throne of judgment scattereth away all evil with his eyes.

When you consider the compromised ethics of most politicians today I am almost ready to go back to the days of having a “king” (4428).  Almost, but not quite.  Just as politicians are divided up between the moral and the corrupt, the competent and the hopeless, the informed and the clueless, so also kings come in all flavors.  What this reminds us of is that people in authority have a responsibility to stand up for “justice” (1779), not for their own agendas.

One of the dangers we live with in our form of government is that people vote their pocketbooks and not justice.  The reason for that is history has always had a majority of people who reject the standards of God.  Remember Jesus’ words about the narrow and wide gates.  At the same time, we are to be the voice and example of righteousness.

So?  Speak up.  Live by the Book.  Be salt.
