June 10 – Margaret Thatcher

Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, whose death on April 8th brought forth many accolades, was known as the “Iron Lady”. She was a believer in free markets, smaller government and individual responsibility. She found a trans-atlantic friend in US President Ronald Reagan. Once when speaking with him, Thatcher, quoting Thoreau, made the statement, “It takes two people to speak the truth, one to speak and another to hear.” Another political leader, Pontius Pilate many years ago asked the question, “What is truth?” But the Bible doesn’t record that He waited for the answer. Jesus, previous to His trial, had made the statement, “ I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me.” Well the truth has been spoken about the most important subject of all time- our eternal destiny, and since you and I are going to live somewhere forever, the question is – have we heard? Have we responded?
