Congress Needs To Act
Theatrics do not set the stage for millions of Americans who have lost jobs, homes, and who have depleted their retirements. Congress should never be in show business! Their business should always be about the welfare of the people they represent. More often than not, we see members of Congress on national television attack each others policies! My question is, “who profits from these attacks”? Media outlets from both sides of the political spectrum argue and pit one policy against the other! By definition, Republicans are to conservative, and Democrats are to progressive! Members of Congress take to the floor of the House and the Senate to attack each other, and their policies. Media picks up every tiny detail of the challenges Congress faces in this country. Congress is nothing more than servants to the people they represent. Democrats, Republicans, and Independents should come together for the common good of the people. There needs to be more talk about the people’s business. As outlined in the SOTU address, the President named many issues and concerns of the people in America! There is no excuse for the gridlock and the obstruction in Congress! We send Republicans, Democrats, and Independents to Washington. We invest time and money to give Congress the opportunity to work for us! Congress should seize this opportunity, and give the American people a return on their investments. We the American people invest in our Government on the national, state, and the local level! If the will of the people is not representative of what we have invested in, how can the will of God be glorified? Jesus proclaims in Matt. 8: 11-12 11: And when the Pharisees saw it, they questioned His disciples, “Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners”? 12: When Jesus heard that, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick”. But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice. “For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” Jesus referred to tax collectors as sinners! Is there a correlation here between taxpayers and tax collectors? Does Jesus try to explain the difference between the two? Taxpayers give tax collectors (the federal government) money to be dispersed through proper channels! Congress decides who gets what, and how much! Whether it be healthcare, education, or welfare, it is the jobs of Congress to disperse the taxpayers money in a fair and impartial manner. After all, the taxpayers money is used to pay Congresses rich salaries! There is no account in the Bible where Jesus ask His people for money to heal the sick, raise the dead, or feed the hungry. Men and women in leadership need to understand that they are vessels whom God has appointed to look out for His people’s health, education, and welfare! God gives men and women the power to do what is right for His people! Whether we be American Indian, African American, Asian, or Caucasian, we are all Americans. Most importantly we are all God’s people! When we do what is right in God’s eyes, we turn away from what is right or wrong in men and women’s eyes. We then restore God’s power to lead mankind in the way they should go! We must let go of judgment upon people who are different than the social status quo demands! We then return power to allow God’s judgment to come on the righteous and the sinners! When the righteous condemn sinners, they know not that their own condemnation and judgment is sinful! Not one of us is innocent, and without sin! We were all born in sin, no matter how righteous we want to appear to others. God is no respecter of mankind. God’s leadership and control is never in jeopardy! By contrast, each and every man and woman’s leadership and control is compromised on a daily basis! We pray for Congress to do the right thing for the will of God, and the will of the American people. Our government can work again if Congress will do what they’re paid to do. Men and women in leadership could take a page out of Jesus Christ’s playbook! We pray for Congress to do the right thing for the will of God, and the will of the American people. If Congress is not going to do their jobs to represent the American people, then change needs to come, and “we the people” shall overcome at the polls! God eyes are never closed to His children, and His mercy is steadfast! Those in leadership need to focus more on WWJD before it’s to late!
