Who to Vote For…

The Republican primary is tomorrow.  The Democratic primary is next Saturday.  A lot of the talk around town is about “Who are you going to vote for?”

I will not endorse any specific candidate.  I will encourage all of you to vote.  But I also want to encourage you to think and pray before you vote.

Think about:

  • Who is willing to learn.  Being President requires a humility to learn.
  • Who is a track record of pulling people who disagree together.  Anyone can talk a good game;  politics in our country requires compromise to advance your cause.
  • Who has courage to act and not to act.  Dwight Eisenhower’s great legacy includes numerous times when he chose not to unleash America’s military might.
  • Who has a sense of dependence on God.  Who knows they do not know and is willing to ask God for help.

Pray for:

  • Wisdom.
  • Pray that there will be no hate in your heart when you go to vote.  Hate in your heart can lead to a vote for a candidate that hates, an attitude which does not honor Jesus.
  • A non-angry, non- condemning attitude toward those who vote differently.
  • Pray for a candidate who is willing to do justice, love mercy, and walk humbly with God (Micah 6:8).
  • Pray for God to bless, preserve, and protect these United States.

Above all, keep your faith in Jesus.  Government can do some – but Jesus can do everything.
