Vote this Tuesday

Listen therefore, O kings, and understand; learn,
O judges of the ends of the earth.

Give ear, you that rule over multitudes,
and boast of many nations.

For your dominion was given you from the Lord,
and your sovereignty from the Most High,
who will search out your works
and inquire into your plans.

Because as servants of his kingdom you did not rule rightly,
nor keep the law, nor walk according to the purpose of God,
he will come upon you terribly and swiftly,
because severe judgment falls on those in high places.

For the lowliest man may be pardoned in mercy,
but mighty men will be mightily tested.

For the Lord of all will not stand in awe of any one,
nor show deference to greatness;
because he himself made both small and great,
and he takes thought for all alike.

But a strict inquiry is in store for the mighty.

To you then, O monarchs, my words are directed,

(Wisdom 6:1-9)

It is nice to sit back and call our countries leaders, Kings, Judges, and Monarchs and complain.

But this is a democracy, as President Lincoln said “of the people, for the people, and by the people,”

We are the Kings, Judges, and Monarchs on Election Day.

As servants of His kingdom:
did we vote rightly?
Vote to keep the His law?
and vote according to the purpose of God?
