Don’t Be Impressed

This morning in my Bible study was Ecclesiastes 5:8 which reads “If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for He that is higher than the highest regardeth; and there be higher than they.”  As we listen to the news, this verse can be so comforting.  Of course, we should take human footsteps as God reveals to us what is to be done, but there is enough anger, human will and hatred already.  As I pray with this verse and know in my heart God is in control with no opposing power, I am comforted and listen for His instructions.  One thing I know for sure is Love should be first and foremost in our heart; not ego, greed and ambition.
