WE THE CONSIDERATE PEOPLE

Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from a publication of The Constitution of the United States of America published with permission of the American Civil Liberties Union.

Today I pray, “Dear God, What constitutes a good place to live on earth? Amen.”

Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to this passage:

“Every bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States: If he approve he shall sign it, but if he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it.”

Ooo. This is juicy. “Objections” is the operative word here, followed closely by “reconsider”. So, there are the leaders of leaders. In the Church, they are called the Apostles. In the United States of America, she (See what I did there? Keeping it balanced.) is called the President. In other lands, they might be called Prime Minister, Queen and King, Governor, Chancellor, or Monarch. It is always acceptable, and welcomed, to object to their objections. And their objections shall be first considered. Leaders of leaders are the catalysts to healing something that is broken, finding something that is lost, and freeing something that is yearning to be free. Leaders of leaders are ours — to consider, join in covenants with, and object to. What a world of difference they make — and we, the people, too.
