Politics is a hot spot for many people. Everyone seems to get really lit up about who to vote for, what the candidates say or don’t say, the future of our country, moral underpinnings & HEAPS more. For his part, Donald Trump, has certainly escalated the emotional tone & conflict potential for our upcoming national election.
My concern for those of us who follow Jesus has many facets:
- I’m concerned that we will watch & listen to the candidates more than we pray for the election
- I’m concerned that we allow politics to divide us more than we allow Jesus’ love to unite us
- I’m concerned that we are deceived to think that human politics can resolve the broken & fallen nature of the human heart
Whether you like Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Carson, Rubio, Cruz, Bernie or whoever, let’s make the commitment to pray for our country & its leadership more than we worry or complain 🙂
