Is it me or does every Christian magazine or blog seem to be featuring a “Why I’m voting for X” or “Can Christians vote for Y” or “Why I’m not voting” piece these days? Heck, some folks have told us why you’ll go to hell if you vote for that guy and others have created apps to help us figure out what we as Christians should do.
I’m kind of worn out by it.
Every time I open my mailbox, hop over to Facebook, or end up in front of a TV at the gym, I cringe.
It’s just more of the same. He said, she said. Mud-slinging self-interest. Towing the party line. A downright mean-spirited lack of charity.
Even on the Christians’ Facebook pages, by the way.
Well, this blog is not going to tell you the best candidate to vote for, whether or not you should vote, and certainly not who’s getting my vote.
Because there’s something more important than politics.
They're called people.
“Lord, when was it that we saw you hungry and gave you food, or thirsty and gave you something to drink? And when was it that we saw you a stranger and welcomed you, or naked and gave you clothing? And when was it that we saw you sick or in prison and visited you?” And the king will answer them, “Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”
