Blessed are you when men hate you, And when they exclude you, And revile you, and cast out your name as evil, For the Son of Man’s sake.LUKE 6:22
Whew! Took a beating a beating on the social media platform Facebook. The president of the United States, Donald Trump said he is going to sign a bill for the study of The Bible in the public school systems.
Now I don’t agree with hardly anything our president does, but he’s still our president. And God’s word instructs us to respect and obey authority (Romans 13:1). I do agree with this because when I think about the passage that says; “Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty (2 Corinthians 3:7), I can’t help but wonder and feel deep in my soul the reason for the school mass shootings, and all the other evil that goes on in school is because there’s no mention of God .
So I showed support for the president on this and let me tell you, the political watchdogs went to work! There were some people who claim to be a Christian saying some mean stuff with no regard, or ignorance for what the Word of God says. One self-claimed Christian even said the bible doesn’t have any place in the school system.
Finally I asked the commentators on my post who is praying for our government and only one said they were praying.
Well, I withstood the onslaught of those who voiced mean opinions either for or against President Trump. As I said, I don’t agree with most of what he says or do. But I know I have been praying for God to change his heart. And that should be all of our prayers, that God will change his heart so we will have peace in our country.
The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. – James 5:16b
