Did You Know : 3309

James Madison, at the Constitutional Convention of 1787, proposed the plan to divide the federal government into branches... Executive, Legislative, and Judicial. 

The source of his plan? 

Isaiah 33:22 --
For the LORD is our judge, [Judicial] 
the LORD is our lawgiver, [Legislative] 
the LORD is our king; [Executive] 
He will save us.

By the way, Madison was our fourth President and is known as the "Father of the Constitution."

LOVE this reference! Three branches in the Bible! Who knew? (and I'm not the economist - my sweet husband is. I'm a psychologist!)

And if all three levels of Government were God fearing men/women, it would work!!!

What a neat reference. There are such wise instructions to be found in the Bible!

Great reference, thanks for sharing. Trying to catch up with some 'comments'! The poem is absolutely beautiful and I continue praying for healing and peace of mind for your family.
Also thanks for sharing the book on the economy, hard to believe written so long ago, but rings so true today.
May God's richest blessings shine upon you and yours today and every day,
