I’ve been watching the political situation in America & clearly there are some conflicting opinions, beliefs & methods. It seems that our our country is sharply divided & there’s more than enough hostility in this election year.
As a follower of Jesus, it’s disappointing to see so many believers put such faith & focus on politics.
From my perspective, there are some important axioms to keep in mind for each of us who desire to follow Jesus:
- Politics has never changed the human heart – at its best, it’s a bandaid for the sinful human condition
- Let’s be sure our behavior & words match our faith in Jesus otherwise we run the risk of becoming hypocrites
- Pray – 1Tim 2:1-3 tells us to pray for those who are in authority. Let’s pray more than we worry or complain
Election seasons don’t exempt us from being faith-filled & faithful to Christ 🙂
