Daily D – 1 Chronicles 18:14
1 Chronicles 18:14 So David reigned over all Israel and did what was just and right for all his people. (NLT)
Politicians are ambitious individuals. Ambition is good when it is aimed in the right direction. Look for those who lead like King David. He did “what was just and right for all his people.”
Just points to what is morally right and fair.
Right points to what is morally good or acceptable.
King David did what was just and right for all his people.
Our current political parties, and the interest groups within them, are not all that interested in doing what is just and right for everyone everywhere. They quite often want Lady Justice to tilt the scales in one direction or the other. They want money without accountability to flow in particular directions. They want grace and favor for their preferred miscreants.
We can do better than this. We must do better than this.
Consider current events. Who are the men and women of character and wisdom who can help lead us out of the mess we have made? Who will do what is just and right for everyone everywhere? How can we rationalize supporting anyone who will not lead in this manner?
This is a good day to turn to 1 Timothy 2:1-4 and use it to shape our prayers. Ask God to raise up leaders who will do what is just and right for all people everywhere. Seek God’s wisdom on behalf of those leaders. Thank God for good government and good leaders. Ask God to bless us with leaders who will work toward peace and quiet, safety and dignity.
I will pray for leaders who will do what is just and right for everyone everywhere.
Our Father, please bless us with the leaders we need and not the leaders we deserve. Raise up leaders of integrity and character. Provide us with leaders we can support without fear or worry about what they will say or do. Give us leaders who will do what is right and just for all people everywhere. Amen.
