Nonpartisan Advice for Partisan Times

Or Picking Sides in the Kingdom of God…
We are living in interesting times.  Some are hopeful that things are about to change; some are fearful that things are about to change.  Here is some nonpartisan advice from Psalm 146:  “Put not your trust in princes, in a son of man, in whom there is no help.”  The author of this Psalm had experience with good rulers and bad and knew that even the good deeds of any government were never permanent, they were liable to change and decay.  It is all right to support a government when you think it is going right and to oppose it when you think it is going wrong, but there is no permanent solution here.  What is the solution?  The Psalm continues:  “Happy is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God, who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them; who keeps faith for ever; who executes justice for the oppressed; who gives food to the hungry.”  Such a God of permanent goodness is worthy of praise and thanksgiving.  If you want to participate, please join us on Sunday mornings.  It doesn’t matter to us whether you are hopeful or fearful about current events as long as you recognize where permanent goodness is to be found:  in the God who made heaven and earth.
