To Be a King

IMG_6840

1The king’s heart is a stream of water in the hand of the Lord; he turns it wherever he will.

2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the heart.

3 To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.

4 Haughty eyes and a proud heart, the lamp of the wicked, are sin. Proverbs 21:1-4

The folly of kings is to believe they are above judgment. Their position gives the illusion of independent movement and the illusion of being untouchable.

But God… can move them.

But God… weighs the heart.

But God… values righteousness and justice.

But God… considers pride and contempt as sin.

Careful… we all want to live like kings. And their folly is too easily mine.

Jesus is the King of kings and Lord of lords full of truth and grace. If He can move the hearts of kings, He can move my heart too.
