Post Election Notes

There is a face book discussion I was a part of with my family and as my church family I wanted to share my part of it because I believe it so strongly.

The thread started with one Nephew talking about how concerned he is for the future of our country. Very Polite but very concerned.
My Sister in law wrote discussing how the popular vote should have one and my other sister in law wrote explaining the electoral college even more. My Brother added another thought, again very true. (all of the details are really not important)

Because of this.

My reply to them all.

Today I will go to work and try to help broken people. I've done it for 15 years. Whomever is president has not changed that fact. I suggest less time with broken politics and more time with broken people.
That's change we can agree with.

and while some of you may not like that I am not political, Neither was Christ.

Luke 19:10 For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
The Pharisees were Political
The Sadducee's were Political
and Jesus said this about them......
Matthew 23:13 But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in.

The Romans were in Power and yet Jesus never rebelled against their tyranny but instead while hanging on the cross while roman soldiers fought over His cloak said this.......
Luke 23:34 Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

I love my Country
but not as much as my Christ.

I voted fulfilling my responsibility to my Country
But today, I will carry out my responsibility to my Christ.
Find people far from God, and Let them Feel His Love

I care less for the future of our country as I do for the country that one lives in without the love of Christ in them.

That's a country I will fight for.

  1. Thank you for this... I needed it this morning. Election day blues seem to be clouding my mind. Why can I not be as passionate about lost souls and helping people as I am for politics? I am messed up.
