On Tuesday, April 25, 2017, at the United States Supreme Court, Justice Clarence Thomas, a Georgian, administered the oath of office to Sonny Perdue, a fellow Georgian, to serve as the United States Secretary of Agriculture. Sonny Perdue joins President Trump’s administration with unique qualifications.
He grew up on a farm and has experienced the full cycle of life in farming. He knows what it is like to prepare the soil, plant the seed, care for the growing crop, harvest, move it to market, set aside proceeds from the fruit of his labor, and start the process all over again.
He is a veterinarian, so he knows animals and the needs of those in the animal husbandry business. He has served the people at the local level, in the Georgia General Assembly, and as Governor of Georgia.
Sonny Perdue comes with numerous qualifications to serve as Secretary of Agriculture. He also is a man of strong faith. This is a characteristic of many of those selected by President Trump to serve as members of his cabinet.
King Solomon reminds us that, “Righteousness exalts a nation” (Proverbs 14:34 ESV) Many are focusing attention on the first 100 days and what President Trump has accomplished. We should not underestimate the accomplishment of his selection of those who will help him to shape policies and execute the laws of the United States.
Sonny Perdue is a man of Christian faith. He is not ashamed of the gospel.
“Righteousness exalts a nation.” I am thankful that Sonny Perdue has been placed in this administration. From my perspective our nation is returning to a firm reliance on Divine Providence.
