There is much to be concerned about when public officials seem to be given over to the holders of the almighty dollar, who use the power of their money to influence and control those officials. They spend money they don’t have, then hire more agents to try and collect money from people who will probably never benefit from their lavish spending. Then they use the money they gather to add more control over the people! How much more corruption can we take before God brings justice to his people? We think we voted for them, but obviously, they have zero concern for their constituents; they push their agenda and make more laws to lock down and regulate the people rather than listening to the voters who supposedly put them in office. Who is holding their finger in the dam keeping our country from collapsing? However, as God’s children, we have nothing to fear. As Christ-followers, we use the gift of the Holy Spirit to help us navigate this world and put our trust in God alone, for he is our only hope. Sometimes I get caught up in the news of worldly matters, but I must remind myself that we are not of this world; we are merely ambassadors on a journey through this world. Stay on the narrow path, and everything will turn out as God planned.
As for the rich in this present age, charge them not to be haughty, nor to set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly provides us with everything to enjoy. 1 Timothy 6:17
