I was talking with a friend this morning about the political situation in our country & we both shared the same sentiment of grief. He & I are grieved at the vitriolic nature of the political discord that seems be only getting worse day by day.
It seems to me that much of the intensity of this discord is not only being incited by various candidates, but it seems like we the people are choosing to swallow this frenzy rather than step back, pause, reflect & pray. No matter what your political persuasion is or how you choose to vote, let’s be certain to maintain a few core essentials:
- Continual prayer
- Respect for different positions
- Civility in our tone & language with any political conversations
Let’s choose to actively pray for our country more than we debate about our politics 🙂
