Do We Have a 'Good Name'?

The Word of God reads~A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold. - Proverbs 22:1 KJV

This scripture applies not only to individuals, but to nations.

Does our nation have a good name?

I have written about the nation of Israel in previous blogs, and today our President meets with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to primarily discuss Iran's nuclear ambitions.

In the past, President Obama has been publicly critical of Israel. [See above video--the first 5 minutes gives plenty of evidence.] This is shameful to us as a nation.

In a recent meeting with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), a pro-Israel group, our President spoke supportively of Israel.

My prayer is that Obama will keep his word and that Congress will continue to be supportive of our great ally.

2012 is proving to be a historic year already. Let us pray for wisdom for our nation's leaders (I Timothy 2:1-4). And let us
pray that in the Almighty's eyes, America has a good name!
