The government of the United States is experiencing a partial shutdown because of a disagreement between President Trump and Congress. The country has experienced shutdowns before and survived so I believe we will survive this one too, but it has caused a lot of inconvenience for many, especially for employees of the agencies that have been closed.
Have you ever considered the consequences if the Kingdom of God ever experienced a government shutdown? Such an action would do more than inconvenience us. It would probably jeopardize our very existence. We need to be thankful that such a shutdown can never occur. We can always depend on God even when human institutions fail.
I got the idea for this post from reading this article in the Babylon Bee.
