Today is the day after Election Day. Today is a day for many of great joy and for others great depression. For some they feel crushed and worried because their hopes for our nation were defeated, for others there is celebration because their hopes carried the day.
For some “my guy” won. For others “my guy” lost.
To both sides, today, I offer these words as a Pastor and as a friend.
By the way, they’d be same words I’d have offered you yesterday and the day before.
It’s the same advice I will offer you tomorrow.
Pray. Read your bible. Go to church. Love your families. Teach your children. Men, be the Godly spiritual leaders of your homes. Wives, be the Godly woman that God has created you to be, enabling your family to be the family God needs.
Teach your children the truth of God. Value spiritual truth more than worldly truth.
Be salt and light.
Remember the words of Psalm 2 1:3:
Why do the nations rage
and the peoples plot in vain?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
and the rulers take counsel together,
against the Lord and against his Anointed, saying,
“Let us burst their bonds apart
and cast away their cords from us.”
If your guy won, remember that God is the true king. If you guy lost, remember that God is the true king. And true change for our nation starts in the home, in the families, in the churches.
Remember – pray. Read your bible. Go to church.
Be faithful. Love God. Love neighbor.
Be salt and light. And remember John Wesley’s final words upon the earth -“The best of all is, God is with us.”
