• Of Little & Big Men

    15 March, 2019

    With a startling candour President Trump's lawyer and defender, and New York's 107th mayor (1994 to 2001) Rudy Giuliani boasted two decades ago:

    only bribe those who will stay bribed.

    Giuliani's life continues hounded by controversy (as does Trump's). It is preceded and proceeded by fraud, infidelity and shattered relationships.

    Recall, just a moment, the countless other politicians, those in high office or noteworthy people worldwide who have built their throne upon corruptions. All big men for a fleeting season.

    ‘Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness, his upper rooms by injustice, (Jeremiah 22:13a)

    BUT ...

    God's throne is built upon justice and righteousness; none may ever lay a charge against Him.

    There is no season to His greatness.

    There are none who can shame God, because love and faithfulness are His vanguard.

    Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you. (Psalm 89:14)

    God speaks no lies, plans no deceits and conducts no betrayals.

    He is never motivated by self-interest or seeks the detriment of another to elevate Himself.

    God's motives are eternally above all question. There is no higher authority to judge God's moral calibre.

    His platform, His piers, His concrete slab remains justice and righteousness. He cannot act with any other intent or motive.

    There are a few who exult in God's righteousness, while the others who praise themselves are numbered as sand on the seashore.

    The Lord is a shield to the innocent, but a sword to those confident in their own righteousness.

    Better to be a little man in heaven than a big man on earth.
