So our elected officials have decided to come out of their corners pouting and go back to work. They fit right into yesterday's Scripture readings. The scribes, and chief priests, and lawmakers, all greedy, pretending to carry out in public what is righteous but their hearts, rotten with desire and willing to do whatever they had to for the sake of their own entitlement to power.
I was under the impression that the government was in place for the benefit of the country. Silly me; I got it backwards. Surely they must realize the impact their precious shutdown had on the country. What do they care, with their padded bank accounts and mansions? What do they care about the little people that are stepped upon and crushed deeper into a land, seeping with the blood of the inflicted?
This used to be a country that grew strong under the leadership of men who were God fearing men, relying on the guidance and strength of God to govern our people righteously. Now, sadly, God is not present in our leadership for we have become a worldly, secular nation of greed and sin. Woe to us and our future generations who will pay for this with their toil and blood.
Wake up O US of A and see what you've done. You've turned our great country into Sodom. Oh how many times will we repeat these sins of our fore-fathers?
Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand.
