A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes. Charles Spurgeon
Meditation: It is easy to drop the largest non-nuclear bomb on Syria after a gas attack. However, when the government of Syria has become corrupt and oppressive itself and is not being exposed and confronted, no bomb will make a difference. In a similar way, it is easy to get the US popular masses to vote for you if you stir their anger and rage. However, when the heads of government of the US have become corrupt and oppressive, no campaign promise will make a difference. We need to speak truth to power. These days our children receive an invaluable education as they observe our democracy and our legal system stand up against corruption. Our country is standing up for justice. We will defend our democracy and will stop engaging in secret methods of corruption and oppression.
Prayer: God of justice, help us stay alert, informed and involved, even though we are weary. When individuals remain incorruptible and speak out, the truth will prevail. Thank You for all who risk their names, lives and their jobs to bring forth justice and an end to corruption. And we are hopeful. Amen
Gold there is, and rubies in abundance, but lips that speak knowledge are a rare jewel. Proverbs 20:15
