With Elections Nearly Over, What Then?
We’re nearing the end of one of the most heated election cycles the United States has ever experienced. What saddens me most is knowing many relationships are now fractured because of it. We have the privilege and right to vote in this country, yet we stomp on it with hateful objection when someone has the audacity to have an opinion different than our own.
I’ve had political discussions with other Christ followers whom I do not totally agree with. One such conversation turned a bit harsh on both our parts, but we quickly shared grace with one another and chose to humbly disagree.
Healthy debate is good, especially when it’s followed by respect for the other view. We never stop learning! My husband, for instance, has taught me more about politics than anyone else in my lifetime. And I, in turn, have taught him a few things too. 🙂 We don’t always agree, but we do show respect if we have a difference of opinion. Healthy debate, healthy learning.
If you have any fractured relationships due to a difference of opinion over the elections, will you please humble yourself and do your part to heal those relationships?
So long as it depends on you, be at peace with all men. Romans 12:18
How do you handle differences of opinion? Let’s help one another find grace during this very ungraceful time in our country.
Thank You for the privilege of living in the United States of America and for the freedoms it affords me. Please help us all to remember, elected officials will come and go, but at the end of the day, Jesus is still King!
In His embrace,
