Time to start evaluating – Selecting a National Leader
Moses received some great advice from his father-in-law that helped him govern.
Exodus 18:21 “Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place such over them, to be rulers of thousands, and rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens.”
It was interesting reading about the Kings of Israel. The Word of God would frequently record if the leader did good or evil in the eyes of the Lord. Many of the Kings did evil in the eyes of the Lord, but it would bring me joy when I came across one that the Word reported did good in the eyes of the Lord. I would cheer for that King!
The Lord blessed our nation with a representative government, we get to select our leaders. It is my prayer we as a nation select Godly leaders that have a fear of the Lord!
As we begin to evaluate those who desire to take a leadership position in our nation, and represent us in government, let’s select someone who fears the Lord!
May God bless you, and be with you in all that you do!
