“… The fact is… we can all be “king-makers….”

Would your rather be King, or a King maker?  Well, …for me, I’d rather be King, of course, but since that is not, and never has been, possible; then I’ve always said that I’d rather be a “King-Maker.”  What is a King-Maker…after all?  It would be someone who aids and assists someone else in their pursuit of a particular lofty goal; i.e. being, say, Governor.  It seems that I’ve always been just to the left of opportunity; but all too often, I’ve been “right-on-target” in getting others the chance at being “King.”  I have a knack at giving “others” (would be King) better advice then I’ve been able to give myself; hence, I’m a bit of a King-Maker.  The fact is… we can all be “king-makers.”  It is simply a matter of “believing in someone,” and committing to doing all you can to help them achieve their goals.  Their goals can be seeking political office; marriage, a corporate leadership position, or even a Scout Leader.  But the greater position, or opportunity, would be as a Disciple of Jesus Christ, Our Lord God.   We should, all, seek to be “worshipers” of The King of the Universe.  God is in the king-making business. Whether men or women, we are destined in Christ to be made royal children, those who have the influence of kings in our generation. And that’s what David discovered about himself in Psalms 18:35 – “You stoop down to make me great.” God’s condescension is to make something remarkable of us. But it doesn’t come easily. The making of kings is a lifelong process.   …Blessings…cjlb… 5/31/14
