A Lesson in Humility (June 18, 2014)

The political demise of Congressman Eric Cantor reflects what can happen when a politician develops political amnesia—forgetting the core beliefs he was elected for and not listening to the concerns of his constituency.

Cantor began his political career as a solid social and fiscal conservative. But it seems that he succumbed to power and the lure of monied special interests.

David Brat, the political novice who beat Cantor, gave politicians an insight they should remember and keep as a priority, “First of all, I attribute it to God. I’m really humbled and thankful—I’m a Believer and so I’m humbled that God gave us this win.”

Let’s pray that more politicians who profess a belief in God will find that belief strong enough to produce a kind of Godly humility that will mark the way in which they serve.
