When it goes well with the righteous, the city rejoices… - Proverbs 11:10
God’s people are blessing bearers. Noah found favor in God’s eyes, and his whole family was spared. Abraham knew that if a mere five righteous men could be found in Sodom, the city would escape God’s judgment. Joseph was sold into slavery into Potiphar’s house in Egypt, and the Lord’s blessing was on all Potiphar’s property (Genesis 39:5). The presence of Christ-redeemed people in a society bears God’s blessings into their city and nation. There is a direct link between their well-being and the vitality of the social and political units of which they are a part.
