Celebrities, athletes, and politicians all share one thing: exposure. The price of having their name known by millions is that those millions will also have a glimpse into their life, both present and past. The masses laud them for their successes and tear them apart for any misstep.
Such close scrutiny places public figures, especially politicians, under considerable pressure. This can lead to poor performance in office and sometimes strained personal relationships. Many argue that the people have a right to know about those in power over them. Their salaries are paid for by the people through taxes, and transparency can keep people honest.
Being President of the United States magnifies the attention, and the spotlight is world-wide. There will always be a fascination with learning intimate details about the lives of the powerful and famous, but at what point does the obsession begin to cause damage? At what point does the fundamental knowledge that God has created each of us in His image get lost in favor of judging from afar?
If we were on the pedestal that President Trump is, with the scrutiny that he is under, how would we hold up? This is by no means a criticism; it is a reminder that he is a human like each of us. We just see from afar what we are told to see, and we must pray for him, Melania, and other leaders of our country and trust that God has a plan.
Pray for President Trump and First Lady Melania, only God knows their hearts and how they take the pressures of the office
Pray for their marriage and family, that they remain strong and committed together as a family
