I was really happy to find the article below when a friend posted it to Facebook this morning. In fact, it is actually exactly what I wanted to say myself when I posted about the election. However, God gives each of us a unique voice. I care more about whether someone brings God’s words forth period, more so than if I get to be the one who says or types them.
Rising political tides in this country are getting dangerous. There’s simply no doubt about that. Whether the former president strove for it or not, he created divides in this country, the likes of which haven’t been seen in 50-60 years. Of course, everyone wants to pursue his or her “rights” and everyone wants to make sure neither they, nor anyone else, is “offended” by anything.
But is that even possible?
I think not.
What Really Matters
No matter WHO is in charge, even at the smallest level, even in the most unsubstantial role, they simply cannot please everyone, all the time, no matter what. And quite frankly, I’m appalled at the people who think it’s ok to think that we can. Of course, both sides of the fence think their side is the right side. They think that if things can just be “changed”, the other side will SEE how wrong they were, once things get better. Then they’ll have to eat their words!
Still, it all amounts to the same thing unless we are seasoning our words and our deeds with one thing that is more important than any election, any public office, any speech, any THING that you will see or hear… and that is Jesus. Jesus is that Name that is above all Names, and His way is True. He is the ONLY way to the Father, and the only way in which a person can reach Heaven. His Word is true and forever established in Heaven. You’ll never see it bowing to any man made law or position.
It is my desire that you will read the following post. This author makes so many valid points, I simply couldn’t just read it and leave it there. I would love to just shout it from the rooftops. But I suppose my quaint little blog will have to suffice for now.
