How very good and pleasant it is when kindred live together in unity! It is like the precious oil on the head, running down upon the beard, on the beard of Aaron, running down over the collar of his robes. It is like the dew of Hermon, which falls on the mountains of Zion. For there the LORD ordained his blessing, life forevermore.
Do you remember getting a tooth pulled and your tongue automatically goes to the hole? How about driving along the highway and there is an accident on the other side – many slow down to look. It seems like part of the human condition, and we do it digitally as well.
I was reading an article on the election then started reading the comments. I know, its like sticking my tongue in that hole, or creating a gaper delay watching the accident. I had to turn it off and walk away.
Tuesday is Election day, and this has been a very contentious election. Many have their opinions and are willing to share them. The problem is more people want to denigrate each other rather than support the right to opposing positions. There is too much name calling, too much meanness, too much belittling of anyone who disagrees (and I see this on both sides of the political fence).
As I read the scriptures, I’m convinced that God is more concerned with how we behave towards each other than who we elect – especially since God calls us to love one another as ourselves. And no candidate is any more elevated than any other human – they answer to the same God as we do.
As we travel these last few hours before Election day, and as we wait for results remember that each of us are created in God’s image and loved with an immeasurable love – no matter who we vote for.
