While thinking about how we are to approach politics and the city in which we live, I was directed to this chapter to Jeremiah.

“Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, to all the exiles whom I have sent into exile from Jerusalem to Babylon:

‘Build houses and live in them;

plant gardens and eat their produce.

Take wives and have sons and give your daughters in marriage,

that they may bear sons and daughters;

multiply there, and do not decrease.

But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile,

and pray to the Lord of its behalf,

for in its welfare you will find your welfare.'”

– Jeremiah 29:4-7 (emphasis added)
