Message from Jan Wolfe, Art Teacher

Psalm 15 ESV
15 O Lord, who shall sojourn in your vent?
Who shall dwell on your holy hill?
2 He who walks blamelessly and does what is right
and speaks truth in his heart;
3 who does not slander with his tongue
and does no evil to his neighbor,
nor takes up a reproach against his friend;
4 in whose eyes a vile person is despised,
but who honors those who fear the Lord;
who swears to his own hurt and does not change;
5 who does not put out his money at interest
and does not take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things shall never be moved.

As we enter another round of elections, I am always amazed at the politicians, who want to run for a high office, and then have their past ‘sins’ come to light. In the light, the would be politicians, try to explain their ‘sins’ away, try to cover them up, blame someone else, and get even deeper into the lies of their lives. Eventually these would be politicians end up fading away.
As I read Psalm 15, it occurred to me that if politicians wanted to live a life that would be transparent under scrutiny, just following this Psalm would make it easy. We need to pray for those running for offices at all levels. Pray that those who are eligible to live on God’s “Holy Hill” are the ones elected to live on the political ‘hill’.
