It seems that a lot of attention is being paid - and rightly so - to those who lead our country. It's important to keep track of what our leaders are doing, because of this principle that shows up over and over again in the Bible:
"As go the leaders... so go the people."
For example, if the leader seeks God, the people will tend to also seek God. If the leader is 'godless', the people will tend to become that way as well.
The proverb from chapter 29 that I chose for today says basically the same:
"If a ruler listens to lies, all his officials become wicked."
The officials take their lead from the one who rules. If he listens to lies, then they will line up to feed him lies, and in the process become nothing but liars.
Take time out right now to pray for our leaders (and for 'the people') to listen to God and not to lies.
