Greetings all in the name of Jesus Christ.
Just a quick thought today, please go vote, a week from tomorrow, on Tuesday, 11/08/22. There is a reason that we have inflation. There is a reason why we have a war in Europe and a threat of war in Asia. There is a reason why we have no affordable housing, no baby food, no energy, shortages on our grocery shelves, and untrustworthy bureaucracies in government, business, and health care: poor leadership. It's our fault because we voted them in. We allowed it to happen, some of us even wanted this to happen.
Now, I am not going to tell you how to vote. But I will say this, pray, and ask God to tell you how to vote. He will answer you through his Spirit. Hint: Do not let your politics guide your theology, for your theology should guide your politics. If you don't understand what I mean, you are probably voting, or not voting based on convenience or a single issue. This election will guide our future or destroy our future. That's if it's not too late to save what future we have left.
Schedule, in your mind a time to go next Tuesday. If you can't, vote early. Go online and educate yourself about the people running for the various offices and go to the polls with a list of who you're voting for. Don't just pick names. This election is too important for our kids and grandkids. I'm an old man, with a limited amount of time left. With God's help, I'll survive OK.
But with my age comes experience. I know that things can get worse. We have to make sure that they don't.
Do no harm, do good, and stay in love with God.
