Most Important Election of our Lives
I want to repost a an amazing post from my wife. Alongside side a picture of the “First Prayer in Congress”. This is the founding fathers and the way our nation was built. I believe we can move the nation back, but it requires a wise choice. Here is how Jenna put it.
America, and Iowa, today, choose wisely. We don’t need a king! Let’s not make the same mistake Israel made. We need a reformer in the White House who carries the heart of the King, not one that just looks like a king.
Israel made a mistake when they asked for a king…it is what they wanted but not what they needed – and they got Saul. It didn’t matter to them that the king would claim his rights in his reign over them or do what is necessary to save his own name. Saul certainly looked like a king, but did what was right in his own eyes. He ruled in arrogance and pride, and when mistakes were made repentance was not his first inclination, he did what was necessary to protect his reputation. He didn’t so much care about the people, only the people’s perception of him.
So God searched after a man after his own heart…and he was found among the sheep. The people wanted a good looking king, but they needed a kind hearted shepherd. One who smelled like sheep because he was among them, caring for them and looking after their needs.
America, we don’t need a super star. Don’t trade temporal for eternal. Our nation is in need of a greater awakening. We need a reformer to bring our nation back to what she was founded upon. Not one candidate is perfect, but I do believe there is a reformer in the mix.
Choose wisely, America. We don’t need a king!
