I don’t want to see my friends and neighbors clamoring and righting over politics, “Instead, I want to see a mighty flood of justice, an endless river of righteous living.” (Amos 5:24 NLT)Voting is not an act of defiance against one party or individual any more than it is a popularity contest to one party or individual. It is a kind of sacred trust, a civic privilege seldom afforded citizens throughout the ages until this modern era.
“Let each citizen remember at the moment he is offering his vote that he is not making a present or a compliment to please an individual – or at least that he ought not so to do; but that he is executing one of the most solemn trusts in human society for which he is accountable to God and his country.” (Samuel Adams: Essay in the Boston Gazette, April 16, 1781)
Make your voice heard. Cast a vote. Entrust the rest to the one who raises up kings and leads the nations… “… Praise the name of God forever and ever, for He has all wisdom and power. He controls the course of world events; He removes kings and sets up other kings. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the scholars. He reveals deep and mysterious things and knows what lies hidden in darkness, though He is surrounded by light.” (Daniel 2:20-22 NLT)
