We are a divided nation. More divided than ever it seems. And honestly, whenever I listen to anyone who is passionate about politics (Democrat, Republican, Independent, Libertarian, or whatever) it doesn’t seem like anyone even wants to get along.
I’m going to keep this really short today. Last night was the State of the Union Address. Whenever President Trump speaks, I purposefully stay off social media the next day. I don’t want my mind to be filled by the venom (from both parties) that spews.
It’s simply not healthy.
Today…I’m sharing two thoughts I first wrote about during the election in 2016.
Thought #1: Our frustration and division should lead us to God’s Word for truth (not our favorite blogger or news channel).
We listen to CNN and Fox News more than we listen to Jesus.
We read blogs and social media more than we read God’s Word.
We perpetuate division more than we seek unity.
We enjoy blaming more than listening.
I wrote this post on November 15, 2016…
I just reread it. It helped me reset my mind a bit. I still believe every word.
Thought #2: Our frustration and division should lead us to serve the person next to us (not blame someone we’ll never meet).
Before the election had taken place – when it was down to Trump and Clinton – I was praying and God put these words in my mind. I turned them into this image.
Please read it. Process it. Pray through it. And share it. (I think we could all use the reminder.)
