THE STORY OF JESUS: Psalm 146
“Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save.” (Psalm 146:3)
Which political system is best for establishing world peace and blessing?
Communism, Socialism, Capitalism, Democracy… Conservatives, Liberals, New Democrats?
Religion doesn’t do much better – Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Atheism?
Every religious leader and politician believes their plan is the best one.
And yet year after year, term after term, decade after decade, we are disappointed.
I do not put much confidence in princes, nor in priests or pastors.
The only person that has my confidence is Jesus – His way appeals to me.
I believe His kingdom policy – love God, love your neighbour – is the best platform.
It puts the burden of responsibility on us, to do what we can to better our world.
If everyone focused on our own integrity and kindness, things would improve.
If the humility and compassion of Jesus was our standard, God’s kingdom would come.
Thankfully, our leaders do not reign forever, but Jesus does!
I vote for Jesus… He is the best leader of all!
But voting is not enough, I need to follow and imitate Him!
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, our world is a mess, and we are responsible for it. Thank You for coming to show us the better way, and for guaranteeing that Your kingdom will be established, and will last forever!
