Thought For Today - January 27
 Righteousness exalteth a Nation


    "When the righteous are in authority the people rejoice; but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn." Psalm 29: 2 How do we define "the righteous" and "righteousness"?
    The Holy Word of God ( The Holy Bible) says that there is none righteous. "As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one: there is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable: there is none that doeth good, no not one." Romans 3: 10
    If, according to God's word there be none righteous, who then can be deemed righteous enough to be placed in positions of authority to rule over us in the every day affairs of government?
Perfect righteousness can be found only in the person of Jesus Christ, God's only begotten son. Only those who have believed and received him as Lord and savior, and strive to be obedient to him, have had his righteousness imputed to them , and are looked upon by God as being righteous and qualified, according to God's word, to rule. We had better pray diligently for our government leaders, and when it comes time to elect new leaders, if we want to keep our country free, with happy, prosperous people, we had better make sure that when we cast our vote, we ascertain whether they are righteous or wicked, and are standing for righteousness, or if they have no regard for the inspired Word of God.
"Take away the dross from the silver, and there shall come forth a vessel for the finer. Take away the wicked from before the king, and his throne shall be established in righteousness.” Proverbs 25:4-5
If we do not wake up and take heed to what God tells us in his word, someday it will be too late.
"He , that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy." Psalm 29:1
    When God tells us over and over again to do something, or not to do something, and we do not take heed, then there comes a time when God cuts us off without hope.
"In the transgression of an evil man there is a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice. The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: but the wicked regardeth not to know it." Psalm 29: 6,7
Are we righteous? Do we sing and rejoice? Do we consider the cause of the poor and the downcast and try to something about it?
