The Solomon factor is about how one man, thrust into a position of leadership, desperately sought the one thing he knew he needed most for the demands of his life and career, wisdom; it is about how he found it and passed it on to the rest of us. Continue reading

Photo by Abdurrahman ibrahim - Own work A Time for Rejoicing And the seventy returned again with joy ... - Luke 10:17 Our people were full of energy and excitement.

They had ventured forth into the unknown and had been touched by the Spirit in the process of touching others. They returned to Jesus with joy. Have you ever had this experience? Have...

Photo by Daniel Bosse on Unsplash Trail Blazers And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. - Revelation 7:14 There are two powerful words joined together in the scriptures – two prepositions that together bring us hope in our trials and tribulations: out and of.

You might have noticed that my first line stated that the voter is the king of the realm. I had no one in mind when I initially wrote the reflections on the psalm 7 years ago, certainly not the current POTUS. However, while the psalmist is probably referring to a more sympathetic character about whom he has m affinity, there are certain transferable principles that might be applied to prayer for any person in a power function. Yet, I felt compelled to add the rather obvious statement that the voter is king. That is the way our system is structured and recent history proves that the function is not vested with infallibility. Thanks for reading and commenting.
