Wisdom Hunters » Citizenship Stewardship “But Paul said to the officers: “They beat us publicly without a trial, even though we are Roman citizens, and threw us into prison. And now do they want to get rid of us quietly? No! Let them come themselves and escort us out.” Acts 16:37 Citizenship in a free country is a gift from God, and not to be taken for granted. The unborn and the elderly are on the top of their list of whom to protect. Public service is a public trust. We are citizens of a greater kingdom who have a temporary assignment to engage in our earthly kingdom. Taken from the May 28th reading in the 365-day devotional book, “Seeking Daily the Heart of God”… Post/Tweet : Public service is a public trust. Download the free Wisdom Hunters app…

New York - State History New Yorkers are rightfully proud of their state's many achievements and contributions. This synopsis is adapted from a brief history previously printed in the Legislative Manual. Before the year 1900 New York harbor was visited by Giovanni Verrazano in 1524, and the Hudson River was first explored by Henry Hudson in 1609. The Dutch settled here permanently in 1624 and for 40 years they ruled over the colony of New Netherland. In many ways, New York State was the principal battleground of the Revolutionary War. The first government of New York State grew out of the Revolution. Alexander Hamilton was a leader in the movement which ended in the development of the Federal Constitution, and he was active in its ratification. In following years, New York's economic and industrial growth made appropriate the title "The Empire State," an expression possibly originated by George Washington in 1784.
