Everybody wants to rule the world.
In the mid-eighties the band ‘Tear’s for Fears’ sang a song with that title. Is it true that everyone wants rule the world? I do think that there is a tendency within the majority of people to control or put themselves first in their own little slice of this world. I do wonder if we convince ourselves that if we come first then we will get what we want. Yet the economics of that type of thinking and behaviour might bring short term profits within this earthly world, but it will eternally bankrupt a person in the heavenly world to come.
Jesus said, “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” Matthew 6:33
We will live a far more profitable life when we allow the right ruler to rule.
