In God We Trust

Many national governments around the world are in debt. National leaders need to be held to account in how they handle the people’s money. This picture was taken by my daughter when she went on a school trip to Washington D.C. in 2012.

Offering a standard
Of honesty,
Answerability,
And integrity.

The Word of God
Sets us free to be
All that He wants
Out of you and me.

A system of
Accountability
In order to avoid
Instability.

Accusations
Of mismanagement
Are dealt with for
Public advancement.

Leaders are then trusted
With good judgment
To put things in order
And handle the budget.

    Reblogged this on This Day With God and commented:

    This poem was inspired from 2 Corinthians 8:16-24. Paul demonstrates integrity by having standards of honesty in giving a complete account of the use of money. He chose certain people to administer the church fund and also set up a system of accountability. Too bad we don’t have the same attention to honesty and accountability in our world leaders. I hope this poem highlights the importance of integrity in leaders around the world.
