I have observed that people can give you a thumbs up or a thumbs down based on what you say, do or don’t do, your performance or appearance. That’s okay. We live in a democracy. When it comes to what we have to offer as individuals, or what it seems one has to offer, you don’t have to vote for me. I don’t have to vote for you. But don’t forget God. Because God’s judgements of us are not as the world judges. In the Scriptures, the people wanted a king, but God said they had him, they don’t need a king. Still, God gave them a king, probably in his love and grace. When their kings failed and led the people astray, the prophets told the leaders and the people to come back to God. The books of the prophets are about coming back to God. Because with the Lord, you find what you need: a reliable, fair and righteous King who can satisfy your soul. He gives unlike the world gives.
