In America this week, we had a national & local election, so all media outlets were fully engaged with debates, advertisements, etc. There are plenty of folk who prefer less campaigning & not just a few of us are weary of the deceptions & hostile conflict that politics has become. As a follower off Jesus & His teachings, there are a few takeaways to maintain regardless of your political affiliations / preferences.
- Be compassionate – Jesus was helpful, kind, forgiving, healing & generous to marginalized people
- Be prayerful – Jesus taught His disciples to pray, a constructive habit we would be wise to cultivate
- Be loving – Jesus said that His followers would be recognized by their love for each other.
