Who do you listen to?

“Step out of the traffic! Take a long, loving look at me, your High God, above politics, above everything.” Psalm 46:10

imagePolitics is nothing new, and it is getting old. News about the candidates running for local, state, and congress positions trumps every other news reports and will continue to do so for a couple more weeks. Boring, same old stuff is all we hear–promises that can’t be made by anyone other than God!

We can’t let the political news take over for what is really important. Everywhere we look, there are “nesses” that need our attention, such as homelessness, joblessness, loneliness.

I tend to be a bit gullible or naive and want to believe what everyone says to be true. In Psalm 46, we are reminded to “step out of the traffic” in order to listen to God instead of the chatter of the world.

Lord, let us look to you above everything else to find strength for the day. Amen
