If My People

I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed. Daniel 7:12-14
Yesterday was the feast of The Lord Jesus Christ the King in the Catholic Church and Daniel 7:13-14 was the first reading. After being depressed for months about the direction our country is taking, it was good to be reminded that Jesus is the victor over all evil. In fact, in John 18:37b He tells Pontius Pilate, "To this end was I born and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice."

Pray that we and all our fellow citizens would again prize the truth above politics, above personal embarrassment, above our favorite secret sins, and above unearned gains of every variety.
