When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public office let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers “just men who will rule in the fear of God.” The preservation of [our] government depends on the faithful discharge of their duty; if the citizens neglect their duty and place unprincipled men in office the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizens will be violated or disregarded.
The insights of Noah Webster have come home to roost!
Prayerfully cast your vote
I have heard man’s “logic”: “Follow the money.” “Go for name recognition.” “Don’t vote for the best person; vote for someone who has a ‘chance’ to win.”
I, as recently as in the last primary election, fell prey to this thinking. Because my God is kind to me, with His grace, I came to understand the error of my thinking.
2 Chronicles 7:14 back to top
If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
