[Special thanks to my friends at GOA for posting this amazing and timely piece. My how we need leadership and the right kind. I find that our military men if not our government leaders ‘get’ this message, please pray with me that the nation will once again recognize real leadership and humble ourselves and pray and seek Him first above all else!/sc]
Got A Leader For You
— by Sen. H.L. Richardson
Seems as if Americans today are constantly complaining about the lack of leadership — someone to lead us out of the political and moral mess in which we now find ourselves. No doubt about it, there’s a batch of political figures clamoring and posturing for the job, but as yet — no one stands out above the rest.
May I make a suggestion? Why not use the criteria our forefathers used to pick their top leader. In fact, one like that may still be available.
Well now you ask — who might that be?
Let’s start by asking our American founders who did they pick — and pick they did! Let’s start by asking John Jay, George Washington, Sam and John Adams, James Madison and Patrick Henry. Who led them in thought and action?
John Jay, the first Chief Justice of the Supreme Court wrote “Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty as well as the privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers. Our laws and our institutions must necessarily be based on and embody the Redeemer of Mankind…it is impossible that it should be otherwise and in this sense and to this extent our civilization and our institutions are emphatically Christian.”
