“Whoever observes the whole Law but trips up on a single point is held guilty of breaking all of it” (James 2:10).
Reflection: Suppose a political candidate said that although he personally opposed terrorism, he thought the terrorists had a right to do what they did. What kind of support do you think this candidate would have? Would voters say, “I disagree with you about the terrorists, but what is your economic policy?” Certain positions of candidates are so clearly contrary to the good of the nation that the candidate’s other positions, although good, do not matter.
Prayer: Spirit of Wisdom, fill your people, their candidates, and their leaders. Amen.
