A conversation today got me thinking again (I’ve been told that is dangerous business). We were discussing fleshing out Matthew 6:33: 33 “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
What exactly are we to seek? what is it that will be added? Those were supposed to be the questions. The question I came to, though, was: “Who do we as good democrats even begin to understand Kingdom?”
I’d like to invite you to consider how we who live in a country that generally understands that democracy and the exportation thereof is the major factor in freedom are to understand Kingdom. Because I seriously doubt that a modern translation of “seek ye first the democratic republic of God….” would be faithful to the original intent or language.
