“A chicken in every pot”
In today’s first reading (2 Samuel 6:12b-15, 17-19) – an even longer time ago – a popular leader actually gives an abundance of food to the people.
(King David) then distributed among all the people,
to each man and each woman in the entire multitude of Israel,
a loaf of bread, a cut of roast meat, and a raisin cake.
Politicians promise much and we should always exercise great care and discernment, but we should always keep our focus on the Lord and put all our trust in Him.
