I enjoy reading, writing about, and discussing politics.  It shouldn’t be the sole focus of life however, and today in my quiet time reading Psalm 146 I was reminded of what our perspective on politics and government should be:

Put not your trust in princes,
in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
When his breath departs, he returns to the earth;
on that very day his plans perish, (Psalm 146:3-4, ESV)

Whether you are on the right or the left or somewhere in between, our trust should not be in our favorite politician or elected official.  Be it President Barack Obama or Governor Sarah Palin, if we place our hope in them it is misplaced.

We can be involved in politics, we can support different politicians, but don’t let your hope be found in politics or the politicians.  Salvation won’t be found in a government policy.  Let your hope be found in Jesus, who is the way, the truth and the life, (John 14:6).
