That was quite a gathering! And quite a choice to be made by the elders, leaders, judges, and officers! Serve God or “gods” of their choosing.
Who are our gods? Who are the gods of our leaders – our elected officials who serve our country and represent us – when “us” is not very easy to define because we tend to be divided by political party, social status, and religion?
Our task is to challenge them to choose wisely especially when the “gods” approach them to garner favor in exchange for campaign contributions and favors. Choices should be ethical, especially in these challenging times when ethics to many translates into “the end justifies the means.” That’s the translation Satan prefers because it delivers us into evil and has us ignore the will of God.
