Thursday Verse

  I well know, O LORD, that man’s way does not belong to him. It does not belong to man who is walking even to direct his step.

– JEREMIAH 10:23

What a year this world has had. We have seen human rulers under the spotlight as never before. We have seen some who seemed more motivated by economic concerns than the value of human life. We have seen rulers who are too weak to be respected or too slow to act. We have also seen some rulers working tirelessly, and clearly caring deeply about protecting life.

We have seen arrogance and mistakes, we have also seen some humility and modesty. But what is the future of human rulership? Can humans on their own successfully care for the earth and all of it’s creatures?

On their own, humans do not have the ability to care for the earth, and any effort they make will have limited success at best. More than ever it is clear, we need God’s Kingdom!
