"Is this any way to run a country?
Is there an honest politician in the house?"
Psalm 58:1 (The Message)
Oh, so much could be said about this verse right now! I won't get into specifics of what I believe about the leaders in our country because I really don't have the energy for a hot debate right now, but suffice it to say that it's difficult to find a moral politician in any branch of our government right now. The lies, the bribes - it all disgusts me and makes me really wonder where our country is headed.
Needless to say - we need to be praying for the politicians who run this country to start stepping up to the plate and doing what our forefathers expect them to do. Uphold our Constitution; have fair judges who judge based on the United States of America's Constitution and NOT on international law; Senate and House Representatives who don't make decisions based on how much money they are receiving from either side of the issues; and a President who actively seeks the will of God.
Our Pledge of Allegiance says:
I pledge allegiance
To the flag
Of the United States of America,
And to the Republic for which it stands
One nation UNDER GOD, indivisible,
With liberty and justice for all.
"Under God", folks. No, it may not have been in the original Pledge, but it was added, and so long as it is there, we need to live by it.
