Tell me in history where a government has lived up to the potential of goodness from its citizens, it is a sad report that all out institutions fail us. Still it is not vanity to hope that the virtuous heart would rise up to steer out nation.
This is an individual battle as much as the collective I know personally the rage within me from suffering injustice tempts me with promises of vindication. But can a jackass lead a bull? Both are stubborn and arrogant and neither can rise to the potential of this human master. When I think on the ills that now plague our nation I find nothing within myself that can cure. The failure of our institutions is a reflection of our own hearts.
I view myself as a better man morally than my accusers but that is not the measurement that can bring justice. The only reason I know better that them is not because I was endowed with better qualities but in honesty only because the Lord taught me. So as it is with man so it is with our institutions. If we will humble ourselves and trust in the Lord’s guidance then we will arrive at out best potential, a potential which includes justice, wisdom, truth, Love, and hope. A potential reality only found in Christ who is endowed with superiority over our personal weakness.
No vote, no change of parties, no constitution, or reasoned law will deliver us from evil. So when I cry tears under my suffering I also cry for mercy and a true deliverance. For only Jesus Save!
