Ezekiel 34:7-8 “Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD; As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely because my flock became a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my flock”
As we creep up to election day, where we come face-to-face with the right and the responsibility to elect leaders at all levels, may we never forget that leadership matters. May we never forget that leaders matter. Voting provides the culmination of this right and this responsibility. We should have been actively involved in the process all along, but now it is time to formally make our mark to define our future.
Without a shepherd, we are vulnerable in our neighborhoods, in our communities, in our schools, in our workplaces, in our states, and in our nation. Without the right kind of shepherds, we are vulnerable in the same. We become prey in an anarchic world system. We become meat to every beast of the field.
We must choose our shepherds wisely. They must be honest. They must be honorable. They must be value-laced. They must be courageous. They must be inspiring.
They must be selfless! The wrong kind of shepherds feed themselves instead of the flock. They consume the resources, and the attention, and the energy of the government to feed their own lusts. In doing so, they create seams of vulnerability, insecurity, and immorality that will be exploited by our adversaries and our Adversary.
PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICAN CHRISTIANS WOULD CHOOSE OUR LEADERS WISELY. Choose well America, and pray even harder!
SET YOUR ALARM: If you’re alarmed (that American Christians are losing their moral authority), set your alarm (to pray for our nation)!
