"Step out of the traffic! Take a long, loving look at me, your High God, above politics, above everything." Psalm 46:10 (TM)
I sat in the backyard last night and took a break from raking to have a nice conversation with my neighbor. The subject turned to politics, which was obviously a passionate subject for him. Politically we stood, as in real life, on opposite sides of the fence. But, whether liberal or conservative we both agreed on one thing: Politics is a corrupt business. We discussed some of the shady things we’d seen from local issues here in Pella, to the statehouse to the federal government.
Perhaps that’s why the verse today jumped off the page at me. It’s nice that God is above politics. He is not given to closed door meetings and Salvation is not something that can be bought with a sizeable "donation" (wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say-no-more) to the local church or a junket to Cancun.
