Powerful Message to Leaders ... and Those Who Elect Them

The American Baptist publication, Christian Citizen, has a wonderful article every elected leader and everyone who elects them should consider. It references Psalm 146 as a guide. Here is that psalm for our reference and consideration in light of the story, "'Shine a Light in the Corner'--A Sermon for Faithful Citizens Based on Psalm 146." 
Psalm 146:
1 Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, O my soul! 
2 I will praise the Lord as long as I live; I will sing praises to my God all my life long. 
3 Do not put your trust in princes, in mortals, in whom there is no help. 
4 When their breath departs, they return to the earth; on that very day their plans perish. 
5 Happy are those whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord their God, 
6 who made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them; who keeps faith forever; 
7 who executes justice for the oppressed; who gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets the prisoners free; 
8 the Lord opens the eyes of the blind. The Lord lifts up those who are bowed down; the Lord loves the righteous 
9 The Lord watches over the strangers; he upholds the orphan and the widow, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin. 
10 The Lord will reign forever, your God, O Zion, for all generations. Praise the Lord!
