MUSINGS – May 20 2018


1 Timothy 2:1-5
First of all, I encourage you to make petitions, prayers, intercessions, and prayers of thanks for all people, for rulers, and for everyone who has authority over us. Pray for these people so that we can have a quiet and peaceful life always lived in a godly and reverent way. This is good and pleases God our Savior. He wants all people to be saved and to learn the truth. There is one God. There is also one mediator between God and humans–a human, Christ Jesus.”

Another school shooting happened yesterday.* There have been 17 shootings on school properties so far in 2018 and we’re not half way through the year. Clearly something had gone terribly wrong in our society. There have been and will continue to be heated argument about who or what to blame and what solutions we can implement.

I believe that the scripture quoted above is a good starting place. Pray for the leaders in our homes, schools, jobs, churches, towns, counties, states, country, and the world. Pray for our leaders, so that we can have a quiet and peaceful life. Pray that our leaders learn to do what is right, to love mercy, and to live humbly with our God. (Micah 6:8)

We live in a broken world.*** So pray also that God’s will will be done on Earth.****

And, Parents, don’t shirk your duties totrain a child in the way he should go, and even when he is old he will not turn away from it.” (Proverbs 22:6)
