Beloved,As I ponder on the words of Sirach today I also think about the words of wisdom that came to me years ago. “Until you change, nothing in life around you will change.” If we desire change in our country and world we must become the change we desire. Although God has everything in control, we are given freewill to do and believe as we desire. I speak life and break every chain of division, hatred and sickness from our world, beginning with me!!! If I say I love God whom I have not seen and hate my brother who is created in the image of God I am a liar. I choose life and truth!!!
Love and Unity in Abba God,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
“A wise judge will judge his people, and the leadership of an understanding man will be steadfast. As the judge of the people is, so also are his assistants. And whatever kind of man the ruler of a city is, of such a kind also are those who live in it. A foolish king will be the ruin of his people. For cities will be inhabited through the understanding of those with power. Power over the earth is in the hand of God, and, in due time, he will raise up a helpful leader over the earth. The prosperity of a man is in the hand of God, and he will place his honor above the face of the scribe.”
Sirach 10:1-5 CPDV
