Don't Let Obama Jonah You
Most (All?) of the actions of the present Presidential administration hit us wrong, make it seem as if President Obama is purposefully acting out just to spite us, our nation and the God we serve.
We don't like him.
But we are called to pray for those who hate us, to bless and NOT curse those who do as President Obama does.
We don't want to be Jonahs, running from God's command because we hate our enemy and do not want him/them to hear the message of Salvation.
Jonah hated Nineveh. He knew that God was merciful and that, if Jonah preached, Nineveh would repent. So he took a trolley.
Back to our king of Nineveh, President Obama.
We don't have to love him, like him or even look at him.
But we aren't allowed to Curse him-that is the province of God and believe me, if President Obama does not hear the Gospel and repent, there's going to be a whole lotta cursing goin' on, much more definitive than any paltry words we can cook up.
We honor God by respecting those in authority over us, which at this moment includes President Obama. Bitter, but true.
We honor God by praying not only for our loved ones, our families and friends...but also for those who hate us. Those who spitefully use us and kill us.
If you think I like writing this...nope. But we are strong enough to do what needs to be done, and to NOT do what we know we shouldn't. Most of the time.
