Thoughts for the New President

Here are an assortment of thoughts I have for the new president:

Put Christ first in your life. If you have not accepted Christ as your Savior, Mr. President, please do so today. Then let the first stanza of this hymn remind you of some of your presidential obligations:

Take time to be holy, speak oft with thy Lord;
Abide in Him always, and feed on His Word.
Make friends of God’s children, help those who are weak,
Forgetting in nothing His blessing to seek.

—William D. Longstaff

Remember that the man who preceded you was a class act. So was his father, and so was Ronaldus Maximus. Do the same, even though you, like they, will be reviled by ignorant and crass people.

Do what is right. Sometimes you just have to accept the scorn and make the decisions that good leaders make.
