From today’s reading...
When Jezebel heard that Naboth had been stoned to death, she said to Ahab, ‘Get up! Take possession of the vineyard which Naboth of Jezreel refused to sell you, for Naboth is no longer alive, he is dead.’” 1 Kings 21:15
Imagine that: an evil queen creates an evil plan to kill an innocent man so her husband can gain material wealth.
Good thing those days are way behind us now.
Good thing we only have moral people in office now.
Good thing we only have God-fearing people in office now.
Good thing we don’t have any greedy people in office now.
Good thing we don’t have any power-hungry people in office now.
I mean, we don’t have politicians who make 100X in ten months on something like, oh, I don’t know, trading cattle futures.
I mean, we don’t have politicians taking our guns away while they are trafficking guns and SHOULDER-LAUNCHED MISSILES.
I mean, we don’t have politicians getting millions of dollars in government bailouts while they shut down their competition via executive orders and extend emergency powers for years with no end in sight while they are unwilling to articulate the criteria they will use to lift those emergency powers.
Whew! Praise God those days are over, and we can trust our political leaders not to shut our churches down and only want to help us...
Stay the course.
Keep the faith.
Now go sell something.
