“Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”(1)

Him. It is all about Him. If you met Him you would know. He is life. He is contentment. He should be our objective. Not His stuff. Not our relationship to Him. Not our adherence to His precepts. Just Him.

Seek first the kingdom of God. That is what Jesus said. But, what does that mean. In our modern times, we do not necessarily understand what that means. Literally, kingdom means the dominion or judgment of the king. Jesus said we are to go seek God’s kingdom. We were to go to His presence and get His dominion, His judgment, His doom. Scary? No. Read His book. He wants to bless you. Us.

And suddenly… you should find how many times that was said in the Bible. When it is finally time in God’s plans “and suddenly” it happens – all those things He has been saying all along.

An article was written stating christians demand a king in a political candidate. No we don’t.

Christans do not demand a king. Christians should demand someone who loves their country and its people more than power and theirself.

The problem is too many are willing to be led by marketing, news media, and personality rather than sound wisdom, self-education, and sound decision-making.

Abdication of self-governing responsibility leads to dictatorship by others. In the USA, our government is based on the premise that the adults are required govern or manage their own affairs. That responsibility is not given to others.

Everywhere else on Earth, the responsibility of governance is to the state – whether dictator, monarch, or elite assembly.

I count it an extreme privilege to have been born in the time I am and in the country I am where my dependence is not on the favor of a state system but on self determination and individual sovereignty.

I am not dependent on a political savior. I am not so much anti-Obama as anti-bad governmental management.

Our founding leaders understood the US government was based on managing the connectivity of all citizens and not determing how those not of the patron class were to live.

The USA does not need a king, despot, nor ruling assembly. The USA needs only those who are willing to serve their fellow countrymen and the benefit of their nation.

No kings needed here. No kings need apply.

It doesn’t matter what has happened if you choose to change your circumstances, commit, and stick to your decision. This is what happened in the life of Ruth; a young lady from Moab. Life became as bad as it could get then it became worse. She had no place to go. No hope for a future, so she committed herself to an uncertain future.

There is a theology among Christian teachings that we should accept what we have and not ask God for anything. That is not biblical. Just look at what Jesus said regarding asking and prayer.

I recently came across two people who invited me to their bible study. We had a short discussion on who we are, what denomination, and what we believe. I came from the conversation praying for them. Theirs was a faith built on doctrine, being able to defend their faith. Their conversation implied defense as an attorney would argue their case points and with a preponderance of evidence to win their argument. I thought to myself, they know of Christianity but they have no relationship with God. How challenging it must be for them? The rigidity of religious law, the interpretation of religious text, and the constant fear of not being equal to the calling. Wow.
