At one point America was the most powerful country in the world. However, the power of America has been dwindling since the 70’s with our debt level increasing, which is another blog all together:).
So who runs the world? Maybe it’s not a group of people that run the world but rather something, such as money. It is often said, “money makes the world go round.” If true maybe money does basically control/run this world or maybe it not only one thing/persons that run the world, but rather a combination of two or more things. The combination of an intelligent, confident, motivated, and executer of visions individual combined with money becomes almost limitless.
So this still doesn’t answer, who runs the world? According, to one of the most famous and wealthiest singers of all time, Beyonce Knowles, girls run the world. After reading the lyrics to the song I agree with her to a certain degree. As women we do have a great influence in the world and in the words of Beyonce “my persuasion can build a nation.”
Whether that statement is true or not we do know that Eve’s persuasion did change the intended direction of the entire human race (Genesis 3). Also, we know that Delilah’s persuasion actually destroyed a large portion of a nation (Judges 16).
So the question is: who should be running the world?
Scripture: “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NIV).
