Last night, I had a friend who tried to give me an earful about one of these presidential candidates. This person asked me for my opinion & I said, “I am choosing not to express my thoughts on either of these candidates because I’ve watched so many friendships burn up from the conflicts ignited by this political inferno. The only thing I’ll say about this topic is that our nation needs prayer like we’ve never needed it before.”
My friend tried to keep talking about the various candidates & I didn’t take the bait, nor will I.
If you’re reading this, it’s likely that you have an opinion about the upcoming election & who should be our president. But let’s keep three things at the front of our conversations on this topic:
1 – Are your friendships worth torching because you might disagree about politics?
2 – What happens to your friendships when the election is over?
3 – God is on the throne in heaven no matter who wins or loses in this election
Finally, let’s agree to pray more than worry or fight 🙂
