Psalm 118:8-9 (117:8-9 LXX)

It is good to trust in the Lord
Rather than to trust in man;
It is good to hope in the Lord
Rather than to hope in rulers.

Encouraging Words...

Every political season I am amazed at how many Christians begin to proclaim their party and their candidate as the symbol of their faith. "You are not really a Christian unless you vote for...". The psalmist reminds us clearly that our trust and hope are to be in none other than our Lord, our true Ruler. Yes, we should exercise our right as citizens in this world but we should not equate faith in Christ to the things of this world.
