Just because you canBy Randell Tiongson on December 15th, 2009
People enter politics for many reasons… many of them run just because they can. Celebrities and those with political lineage feel that being in public office is their God-given right.
Running for office, even if you have the best chances of winning or you are very competent would not necessarily be good enough reasons to run for elective position. One should not only have the competence, one should really check his heart.
I am proud of my friend Carlo Ople — he has political royal blood and definitely competent and yet he decided not to be in the political arena at this point because he knows his priorities.
To read about Carlo’s decision, read his blog.
At this, the administrators and the satraps tried to find grounds for charges against Daniel in his conduct of government affairs, but they were unable to do so. They could find no corruption in him, because he was trustworthy and neither corrupt nor negligent. – Daniel 6:4, NIV
