Some time ago, Bill O'Reilly suggested that the political rhetoric had become so heated, that perhaps it was time to tone down the intensity for a bit.
There is much at stake these days. Lots of people are out of work, problems abroad and at home, disaster here and crisis there.
I can certainly recognize that our leaders need our prayers much more than our criticism.
And it is hard to pray and criticize at the same time.
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
Anyone who has read the New Testament can see that Christ didn't give a hoot about politics, or government.
With some degree accuracy, I can sum up the Apostle Paul's view of politics and government. I think his advice was to pray and shut up.
Of course, that is hard to do.
Everyone needs a vacation, just like Obama right? I will boldly follow his example of relaxing in the midst of crises, and take time off.
In all sincerity, the President does needs our prayers. So do our troops, and those out of work or hurting.
So enjoy the Summer.
