Not So Bad After All

By David Jeremiah


Those who have turned the world upside down have come here too.
Acts 17:6
 
Paul TenHaken is the mayor of Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He’s also a vibrant believer. When he was a local businessman, he felt a persistent inner prompting to run for office. He ran for mayor and won. Recently TenHaken said, “Everybody—Christian or not—wants a leader with a core set of beliefs, a leader of character. I believe I’ve gotten to the point with people where they realize, ‘Paul’s an outspoken Christian, but that doesn’t mean he’s going to bring hate to our city. He is a compassionate leader.’ The only way they get past that is by seeing your actions…. Now people are seeing, ‘Okay, maybe this guy isn’t so bad after all. He’s a Christian giving out free bus rides to the poor in our city.’”[1]

God wants to use you to turn the world upside down in a good way. He wants you to run and win. Build on what He’s doing in your life. Walk according to His Word. Wait on Him, then watch Him work through you. And soon people will say, “Okay, maybe this person isn’t so bad after all!”
 
I’m a man of faith….That’s where my heart is. I like that people know that about me.
Mayor Paul TenHaken
