Today, the ultimate status symbol for executives, politicians and celebrities is not a luxurious home, a custom gold watch or a designer dog; more likely, it’s a tall, hulk of a man standing silently over their left shoulder.READ MORE
Donald Trump is the first president in United States history with no prior government or military experience. His background is in business, where he served as chairman and president of the Trump Organization. He has expressed that this previous leadership experience has prepared him to be president. However, there are aspects of politics that he has admitted are very different. He spoke about one specific difference when he said, “I think you need . . . more heart maybe, in politics, which I think I have, actually. But there are certain things in politics . . . Maybe you have to be a little bit softer in a certain way, certainly in terms of your thought process.”
Given the reputations and stereotypes of many politicians today, one would not expect the need to be “softer” in politics than in business. However, when asked about this, President Trump expressed an appropriate understanding of the gravity with which his decisions affect others. “Well . . . think of the decisions that have to be made. When you’re thinking about sending young men and women into war . . . you don’t have that kind of a decision if you’re running a company or if it’s business. These are such monumental decisions . . . there’s nothing easy about it. That I can tell you.”
There is much unrest in our world today – unrest surrounding North Korea, continued unrest in the Middle East, and growing unrest within our own country. President Trump needs prayer as he seeks to make wise decisions and as he copes with the weight of those decisions.
Pray for God’s peace to surround President Trump as he makes crucial decisions for our country
Pray that God will give President Trump wisdom to make the right decisions
