It happens every four years. The two parties nominate their candidate for President. Slogans are adopted. Rallies are held. The airways are filled with attacks and counterattacks. People argue and debate. Battle lines are formed.
Most decide which candidate they will support well before they cast their vote, but not all. Some remain undecided until the last possible moment. But eventually they have to make a decision. Even deciding to do nothing and opting out of the process entirely is still a decision. Decision-making is unavoidable.
For the next four weeks we are going to look at decision makers in the Old Testament. All are political leaders and most of the decisions they make have national and international implications. However, the qualities that we see in these four individuals are not only qualities that we should desire from our political leaders, but ones that we should be model as well. Because none of us live lives that are undecided.
