There are three primary ways we can make a positive difference in people’s lives.
First, in every country, you can intercede for God to intervene, save, and bless the affairs of individuals and your nation. Second, in all nations, you can make a personal impact through works of compassion, service, wisdom, and truth-sharing with others.
Third, only in free nations, can you make a difference by voting consistently and wisely for good leaders.
Here is my USA midterm elections plea to all who care about America’s future.
I just returned from the county courthouse where I spent the morning with forty fellow Americans serving on jury duty.
I have many friends whose faces fall when they receive a jury summons in the mail. A number of them are close to me (and shall remain nameless).
On the other hand, I relish the call to jury duty because it reminds me of the privilege of living in a nation where biblical principles dictate a love of justice that is completely foreign to Muslim governments and totalitarian nations–and most of recorded history.
To me, the duty and responsibility of citizenship in a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people” is a priceless treasure.
Since this past week saw an outbreak of horrific evil with national elections looming, I think it’s fitting that we admonish each other to hate evil, do our duty and get out and vote.
