Bad Leaders.

Solomon compares wicked rulers to roaring lions or charging bears hunting for their prey. Dangerous and destructive, political tyrants think only of themselves, causing people experiencing poverty to crumple under their leadership.

Thankfully, our forefathers designed a government that has checks and balances. Like the triune God, three system branches work together to run our country. Sometimes, one party has a majority, and sometimes the other does, but even so, accountability helps prevent tyranny.

On the other hand, Hitler destroyed the democratic institutions in Germany and tried to conquer Europe while eliminating people he deemed not worthy of life. Ruling until his death, Hitler committed suicide in April of 1945. Hitler killed 11 million people during his reign, a roaring lion hunting his prey. 

Pray for our leaders that God rules their hearts and minds. Let our country turn back to the Lord, living for Him, one nation under God.

Lord, bless our nation. Please turn our hearts and souls back to You, submitting to Your commands and living for an audience of One. IJNIP. Amen
