The only time you will ever be a King in the USA is when you vote.
I challenge you to be as wise a judge as King Solomon when you make your final judgement about the leaders you are going to select when you vote.
Consider these Proverbs he wrote about what a King looks for when he discerns a person standing before him awaiting his judgement for his words or actions.
Is the candidate telling you the truth?
“An ideal governor is an upright truthful man. A community will thrive on the candor of their governor. A king loves the candid man with integrity in his circle of advisors.” A king approves truthful speech, and loves the words of upright men. (Proverb 16:13)
What should you seek to discern evidence of how to assess the candidate standing before you that you are about to judge?
“Then you may seek out and find where the poor in the community live to find truth. Observe the poor, the most vulnerable of a community, to find if they appear oppressed by injustice. You can judge the humanity of a governor by listening and observing the conditions of the poor of his community. If the governor cuts himself off from the poor, they will not hear him when he is in need.” He who stops his ear to the cry of a poor man will himself cry out and not be answered. (Proverb, 21:13)
Is he or she is an incumbent, how did they vote to represent you? Did they listen to you when they were in office or do what they promised? Do they fit this description in this Proverb?
What they promised, did they deliver?. There are men that pose as benefactors, promise magnificent gifts, but their undertakings bear no relation to their resources. Their words are empty, same as deceptive clouds and wind that produce no rain. I believed Hiram to be a man of iron, not a man of straw with empty words and no resources. Clouds and wind and no rain, a man who boasts about a non-existent gift. (Proverb 25:14)
If not an incumbent, do you believe he or she is telling you the truth about his motivation for running for office? Do they have a record of leadership, success, and good character who would provide you hope as in described in this Proverb?.
Great leaders will possess wisdom, good sense, and provide hope for their subjects. They will have the ability to express reality and instill within their followers an exhilarating feeling that it is good to be alive for both themselves and their posterity, their tree of life. The better their leader, the greater will be the achievements of his subjects. A leader that draws out and frustrates hopes and desires will lose the morale of his followers that will result in a sickness to end their desire to bear children, their tree of life.” Hope long drawn out is a sickness of the mind, but realized desire is a tree of life. (Proverb 13:12)
In Other Words
Would you decide to have a new baby if the candidate you choose is elected? Or would you decide not to have a child because you believe you cannot afford or want to grow your family tree under their leadership?
Payoff Time to Answer Their Pleas for Office
Judge wisely. Your nation (baby) is now in your court. It is up to you to now stand in front of the sword and defend your baby same as the rightful mother did 3000 years ago to prevent her baby from being cut in half.
