CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY DECEMBER 31, 2018
WHAT WILL 2019 BRING? ONLY GOD KNOWS. I DOUBT MANY PEOPLE COULD HAVE PREDICTED ALL OF THE EVENTS OF 2018 ONE YEAR AGO. PROBABLY NO ONE COULD.
ARE YOU LOOKING TO GOVERNMENT TO IMPROVE YOUR LIFE OR THE LIVES OF OTHERS? HERE’S SOME SOLID ADVIDE FROM AN ANCIENT LEADER. WHEN HE WAS KING OVER ISRAEL, DAVID WROTE THIS PSALM: “Do not put your trust in princes,
in human beings, who cannot save.
When their spirit departs, they return to the ground;
on that very day their plans come to nothing.
Blessed are those whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the Lord their God.”
THAT’S FROM PSALM 146. LOOK IT UP. IT IS GOOD ADVICE ANYTIME AND ESPECIALLY AS WE ENTER A NEW YEAR. PRAY FOR OUR LEADERS, FROM THE PRESIDENT ON DOWN, BUT DON’T PUT YOUR ULTIMATE TRUST AND FAITH IN THEM. THEY ARE A DESTRACTION FROM GOD AND HIS PLANS FOR THE WORLD AND OUR PLACE IN IT. ALL OF THEIR PLANS END IN DUST. ONLY THE KINGDOM OF GOD ENDURES FOREVER. AND WITH THAT, I WISH YOU A HAPPY AND BLESSED NEW YEAR. I’M CAL THOMAS.
