Gaming Us
John 14:27 (NLT) “I’m leaving you with a gift -peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.”

(Disclaimer: Chess is a game worthy of learning and mastering. Enjoy!)
I’m not a chess player. I’m sure there’s more to it, but I vaguely understand the objective of the game as being to trap and capture the king of the opponent while protecting one’s own king. In the process of playing, the other chess pieces on each side of the board get moved around and knocked out of the way until the winning side prevails. Sounds like a day of government activities, if you ask me! You know – fight for and protect the ones who think (or perhaps looks) like us - and push everybody else out of the way. Some may laugh at such a thought, but the concept of strategic ‘gaming’ is a venue in the political and business arenas. It’s being taken lightly, and it’s a costly disservice to peoples’ lives and the construct of leadership we want to follow. Life is not a game. I’m so glad that nothing – not even death - can trap or capture our King, and He fights for and protects every one of us who look to Him from every harm and danger! He’s the King of all kings. He is King Jesus, and He sits on Heaven’s Throne!
