And the next President is…

Well, we just don’t know who will win yet…  🙂  We have no idea, and it’s driving some of us craaaazy!!lol…

Yes, we need to be involved in politics.  And yes, I will be exercising my right to vote.

But there are a few things I won’t be doing:

1. I won’t be bashing the candidates.  Nothing wrong with voicing your opinion, but I won’t be calling anyone an “idiot” or “worthless” or other names that I am teaching my children to avoid.  I choose prayer and respectful discussions over name-calling.

2. I won’t be getting into political debates on facebook.  I have seen people lose life-long friends over “facebook arguments,” and most of the time, people’s minds aren’t going to be changed by a heated five minute exchange that takes place on facebook.

3. I will be trusting in God regardless of who gets into the White House.  Because of my faith, I know that regardless of which candidate is elected, my God is still on the throne.  I refuse to act like my “life is over” if my candidate of choice is not elected.

Even if we disagree on politics, we can agree to trust in God.  We can agree not to give into the arguments and insulting that we see the world doing.  We can agree to take the high road regardless of what those around us are doing.

Blessings!  🙂

      Thanks Sylvia; it is great that you are praying for our future leaders and keeping out of the disagreements. 🙂 Blessings and good to hear from you! Lauren

    you’re right, it’s amazing how politics can bring out the worst even in Christians! it’s as if there’s an exception to His Word during this time and it’s not. it would be nice if a politician can run a classy campaign without having to bash his opponent. what does that say about yourself as a leader if you are not confident in your skills to bring up your opponent’s dirty laundry?

      That’s right, Yalanda! We don’t get a pass on behaving like Christians just b/c we don’t like a candidate. 🙂 I am glad you’re being a good example during the election; keep it up!
