“Exercise your freedom by serving God, not by breaking the rules. Treat everyone you meet with dignity. Love your spiritual family. Revere God. Respect the government.” 1 Peter 2:16, 17
A friend took a photograph early it the morning and sent it along with a note about what she just saw. I thought it was beautiful truth and I wanted to share it this day before a big day of elections.
“I took this photo this morning and loved how the light was illuminating the American flags but mostly how the Cross was standing out against the morning sky and so large compared to the little flags. It made me think about the upcoming election and that this is what our thinking should be in relation to how we vote.
As 1 Peter says, we need to ‘Revere God and respect the government,’ but we also need to ‘treat everyone we meet with dignity.’ May we be not only filled with conviction but also with compassion.”
Please take extra time today and tomorrow (hey…why not every day?!) to pray for America’s leaders, elections, voters and to go back to it’s roots and foundation on which our country was formed.
(Thank you Pam Bonney for that good and needed reminder this eve of elections and for letting me share your heart and wisdom today!)
In GOD we TRUST.
