THE STORY OF JESUS: Psalm 72
“Endow the king with your justice, O God, with your righteousness. (Psalm 72:1)
Imagine the perfect government, led by the perfect leader.
Always striking the right balance between justice and mercy.
Leading with integrity, honesty, morality and fairness for all.
David is praying that he will be this kind of leader.
I believe that this kingdom is real, and possible, and coming.
As Jesus followers, we believe that Jesus is this good king!
Jesus has beaten Satan, and reclaimed the throne for Adam.
Now we must choose, like David, to be a Jesus kind of leader.
To lead with integrity in our homes, workplaces, schools, communities.
To be kind, fair, patient, peaceful, moral, honourable.
Jesus is in charge, His Spirit is with us, He will help us.
But we must desire it, pray for it and pursue it, like David did.
Today as I go about my business, I can work torwards this kingdom vision.
Will I choose to be fair, kind, honourable, etc. in my part of God’s kingdom?
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, may Your kingdom come, may Your will be done, in my life as it is in heaven. Bless me, that Your blessing may flow through me!
