Putting hope in its place

These political campaigns are dragging me down. In my lifetime I’ve never felt so discouraged about the direction of America or its leaders on the horizon. For me it’s a clear wake up call. As long as the US is hopeful and robust it’s a huge temptation to rest in her shade and let kingdom matters trail along behind. (Some of us, during the “good” times even fall into the scarier deception of thinking America is synonymous with the kingdom of God, though we’d hardly admit it.)

Anyway… it’s a good reminder for us to put our trust in the real Kingdom, which is unshakable, and which has nothing to do with silly elections, big bucks, and empty campaign promises. That kingdom will eventually fill the earth with justice, mercy, and the beauty of God as surely as the waters cover the sea. (Hab. 2:14
