Your Views: Leaders should turn to faith

POSTED: January 18, 2011 1:00 a.m.

I wish you and many more could have been with us Jan. 9 when the pastor started his sermon by using as a subject, "Getting down to our Father's business." He was speaking to the congregation, but in reality it was a message that I wish all Gainesville could have heard.

It was a message all believers and leaders would have been blessed to have heard starting out 2011 with so many uncertainties. I am sure that in a time like this we need to be more concerned about our father's business. What do we have to lose?

Our leaders, whether they be men or women, such as our governor, lieutenant governor, speaker of the House, just to mention a few, are important men and leaders who should be in close contact with their superior (heavenly father) in order to govern and do it right.

Our leaders, whether they be men or women, should be those who believe in staying in close contact with their true father of the universe. There is no one else with the power that measures up to his.

Everyday living can be hard and frustrating at times, but to dismiss or think our creator's help is not needed is nonsense. Furthermore, that is what the enemy wants us to think. Our problems will continue to multiply as long as we think our creator's help is not needed in our everyday lives and business.

I trust that men such as Gov. Nathan Deal, Lt. Governor Casey Cagle and Speaker of the House David Ralston and legislators believe our state, with God's help, will fare good even in bad economic times.
