An interesting juxtaposition sitting on the back of my toilet: a Newsweek article on Pakistan, their involvement with the Taliban, and their nuclear surge; laying on top of a recent issue of the Voice of the Martyrs asking us to pray for Pakistan. How often do you consider that as the solution to the problems presented in Newsweek? It’s all too easy for us to compartmentalize our lives into “sacred” and “secular”, into “church” and “everything else”. Looking at the world constantly through political lenses is a temptation we have to constantly fight against because it is the lens that almost all information is provided to us through. Let’s strive to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.
