In a nation where leaders are falling over themselves to enact so-called progressive social policies like abortion on demand up to birth and sexless birth certificates, it was refreshing to read something different. Late last week, South Australia’s web-based newspaper In Daily said the Premier and the Leader of the Opposition could both be characterised as men who did not enter politics to enact social policy. Instead, it stated that both politicians wanted to ensure a strong economy.

There is a synergy with this view and that expressed in 1 Timothy 2:1-3:

“The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live (Message)”.

The role of government is to rule well so that people can get on with the business of living simply. It is not to encourage the destruction of children by abortion, or to confuse children by teaching gender theory and sexualised content in schools. Rather, it is to ensure an ordered society, with good policy settings to encourage dads and mums to grow their families and businesses for the common good.

Other leaders in Australia would do well to look at those in South Australia.
