In the last few weeks, the internet has been flooded with selfies of people sporting their “I Voted” stickers. It appears more people have gotten involved, fulfilling their American civic duty to vote. This time of year also brings endless discussions, ads, and campaigning for local, state, and national elections.
As I write this, we do not know what the outcome of the elections will be, but we do know that there will be winners and there will be losers. So what next? We can answer by focusing on two basic relationships.
“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength (a vertical relationship). The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself (a horizontal relationship).’ There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31
So, what must we do?
Remember the “I Voted” stickers? I stuck mine on my computer as a reminder to pray!
