The Morning After: A Call to Humility

Stop gloating.

Stop grumbling.

Start praying for the man who has been appointed to lead our country.

 

 

Don’t idolize him.

Don’t demonize him.

Just intercede for him and his task ahead.

 

 

Don’t place your hope in your issues.

Don’t heap your hate on your opponents.

Practically and consistently, seek the welfare of the city where God has placed you.

 

 

Your government can’t save you.

Your politics shouldn’t define you.

Your calling is greater than both of those things.

 

 

Your messiah is not a man.

Your kingdom is not this country.

The longing in your heart is not for this world, but another.

 

 

First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way. This is good, and it is pleasing in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus… (1 Timothy 2:1-5)

    […] some of our overseas personnel, so I thought I’d dig up a post out of the archives that was originally published on the first Wednesday of November 2012. Yep…our last day-after-the-Election-Day. Much has changed in our country since then, and […]
