BLESSINGS BY LAURA STORY
However election day went for you, that shouldn't be the end of the story. Whether your picks won or lost, there is still a lot of work to be done.
I've seen and heard a lot of fellow Christians lamenting the results, or gloating. Both sides have acted like the outcome was the final say on all they care about. Like, now that the votes are in, God's all done with His work here.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
My friend Donnie had some awesome ideas on putting your faith into action between elections:
1. If you are against abortion, what are you doing to reach out to pregnant women considering such a horrible option? Are you involved with any PRC? Voting for candidates who share your values is fine, but only the begining of making a difference.
2. If you are uncomortable with our health care system, or think there is a problem with illegals in this country, what are you doing to reach out to the poor and uninsured? Does your church's benevolent fund go to help such people?
3. If you believe sexual sin is destroying families, what are you doing to reach out with Christ's love to those who practice? You're more likely to personally change a heart through a loving relationship with a sinner (which we ALL are) than through a politician.
I'll pipe down now. Because honestly, I am SO ready to move past all of this year's political drama. I'm challenging myself to put my faith into action outside of the voting booth. If you'll join me, the nation could look much different in four years.
