Today I read 1 Chronicles 18 where David goes to war against several different people. David is blessed of the Lord and conquers everyone he goes to war with. I have said before that the only good reason to go to war is because God commands you to. Otherwise it is a sin in my opinion and we will be held accountable to it. Now, in the past God has had a standing commandment that as long as we are not guilty of the first offense we may defend our lands, family and liberty. I can only assume that this has been the directive from the beginning.
It must be hard to be a leader, to be responsible for not only your actions but for the actions of all those under you. I certainly have a challenge with it at work sometimes with my employees I could not imagine being in charge of an entire country. I don't think I will have to worry about that personally. I have no ambitions to be President of the country or a leader of anything really. Unless the Lord steps in and has something different to say, I think I am safe from that burden. And I certainly won't start any feuds of any kind on my own so I think I am safe from the problems of war for myself. Until tomorrow.
