Give us a King!

Israel desperately wanted a king so they could be like the nations around them. God consented and the kings both individually and collectively ranged from the righteous to the wicked, the wise to the foolish, ....

The U.S.A. rebelled against the monarchy and installed a republican form of government. Yet it is sometimes, pointed out that it is ironic that the US has a fascination with political families and dynasties: Bush, Clinton, and particularly the Kennedy's.

I am in the U.S.A. right now in the midst of many events and deliberations marking the death of Senator Edward Kennedy. Surely this is a story just like that of Israel and the Kennedy dynasty history contains the same elements of wickedness, tragedy, heroism, adversity....

There is only one King in history who had a record without blemish and whose public service was completely self sacrificial and was the most inspirational leader who ever lived. Let us praise Him!
