“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace.” – Isaiah 9:6
As we celebrate this Christmas let us reflect and meditate on this scripture as written in the book of Isaiah and remember this is the reason for the season.
Our government is on his shoulders and we are relying on our government to keep us safe and coordinate all of the services we have come to rely on.
In America it is a government of all the people regardless of race, gender, religion, age, national origin, or economic status. It does not matter if you were born here or chose to come here and take an oath to live here. Our constitution is here for all of us as we select representatives that take an oath to protect and defend our rights on behalf of everyone.
In so doing if we follow the guidance of our Wonderful Counselor we will do it in a way that is inclusive of all our people. If we do it in his way it will bring Peace to our families, communities, nation and world. If we do it in the Mighty name of God then we can and will experience the Everlasting peace that we all seek.
Enjoy this holiday season and have a blessed Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
