At church this morning, the pastor emeritus prayed that God might grant our leaders wisdom as they made their decision about Syria. Unfortunately, what will probably happen is that the U.S. will bomb Syria, and civilians will die in the process. See Ezra Klein’s article, Could Bombing Syria Kill More Civilians Than It Saves? And God most likely won’t step in and stop this, for God hasn’t stopped numerous other civilian casualties in the past. If I were to ask God to grant our leaders wisdom, it would be so that they would know how to negotiate, so that the disputes could be resolved without bloodshed. That would require a lot of wisdom—-an ability to think outside the box! But I don’t think that we’ll be seeing that.
