Our Weapons Are Not Carnal
We have a leadership issue
Imagine the rich unfeignedly imploring God’s blessing upon the poor—and where could be found room for the exercise of injustice and oppression? Imagine the poor praying for the rich—and where would be found room for the exercise of envy, of violence, of revenge, and of robbery? Imagine the rich praying for the rich—and where would be room for the display of rivalry, contention, and selfish ambition? Imagine the poor praying for the poor—how much kindness and mutual affection would be immediately drawn out into active operation! Imagine those in authority imploring God for a blessing on every measure they undertake, and upon all their national policy—and where would be any scope for individual and selfish aggrandizement? where would be any disunion of the interests of the ruler and the ruled?
