Let Not Mercy and Truth Forsake You

This week the 2012 election season officially started with the Iowa Caucuses, and when it comes to winning we see that our politicians have a take no prisoners and say whatever you have to attitude. Win at all costs. This is in stark contrast to today’s quote:

“Let not mercy and truth forsake you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.” -┬áProverbs 3:3 NKJV

Unfortunately, the would-be leaders in our country seem to forsake both mercy and truth in order to get elected. Even more unfortunate is that the voting public buys into it. Let’s pray that God would provide us with leaders that wear mercy and truth around their necks, that have love and integrity written on the tablets of their hearts.

Did you notice today’s quote is a Bible Double?

Let Not Mercy and Truth Forsake You — 2 Comments

  1. This reminds me of the scripture in Micah to do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly before God. How many times do we love to point out where somebody is wrong? I believe one of the candidates said they weren’t being negative, just bringing out flaws in their competitor’s record. There must not be room in the White House for the love of mercy these days…

  2. Yep, they take the high road until they fall behind, then forget about it. Also reminds me of how Jesus is characterized as being full of mercy and truth.
