Wise Government 08

Mr. Jefferson,

“Our Governmental System is established by a compact, not between the Government of the United States, and the State Governments; but between the States, as sovereign communities, stipulating each with the others, a surrender of certain portions, of their respective authorities, to be exercised by a Common Government and a reservation, for their own exercise, of all their other Authorities.” J. Madison

Short Prayer

7 ‘Two things I ask of you, Lord; do not refuse me before I die:
8 keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread.
9 Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, “Who is the Lord?”
Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonour the name of my God.

Proverbs 30:7-9
