This is a letter to our friends –


“PERSONAL´ITY, n. That which constitutes an individual a distinct person, or that which constitutes individuality.” [Webster’s 1828]

We need good people in elected office. Have you thought seriously about running? What would you be best at? There are three general categories: Lawmaker; Executive; Judge. You practice all three every day. You plan a project – “legislate”. You execute the plan – “executive”. Then you evaluate the result – “judicial”. God does the same thing, “For the Lord is our Judge; the Lord is our Lawmaker; the Lord is our King. He will save us.” [Isiah 33:22]

Businessmen often see that a gifted salesman often gets promoted and makes a poor sales manager. The two jobs require different skills.

A gifted executive is a leader. Donald Trump is a leader. His followers will follow him through fire. A gifted legislator is a “mechanic” who thinks outside the box. A gifted judge is one who can overcome personal opinion and evaluate a situation impartially as measured by an accepted standard.

Pause here – Many fail to make this self-evaluation before running and end up in the wrong office for which they are most qualified.

All three require a servant’s personality. Do you have a desire to serve? Tell someone and tell God. [Proverbs 16:3]
