RCL Daily Devotion for Monday, October 7, 2019
RCL Daily Devotions written by Daniel D. Maurer from RCL Worship Resources (see more).
Say what you want about the relevancy of Bible passages, without a doubt, many of them have nothing to do with today’s global political situation. (One does wonder whether any leader throughout history could be compared to Donald Trump, though.)
There is an interesting connection with today’s reading from the minor prophet Habakkuk. The passage tells of the Chaldeans, who pretty much though that they were king of the hill, and none could stand in their wake.
The big surprise (or maybe not so surprising) is that, historically speaking, the Chaldeans and so many other political legacies never, ever last. They all think that their might is enough to get by and last forever.
But it’s not, and it won’t ever be.
How does the United States as a country act in this same manner? How is it different today?
