Scripture Saturday--Who is in Power?

O Lord, your strength gives joy to the king ~Psalm 21:2
This verse from today's Office of Readings hit me this morning.  How many of today's political "rulers" take joy in the strength of God rather than in their own political strength?  How many people in positions of power of any type, do what is truly right by God's standards instead of what will keep them in power and help them save face?

How many of us who are not in power demand what is right from those who are?  How many of us settle for the status quo?

Pray for those in power, in government, business and in the Church.

Dymphna's favorite quotes


"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
