How To Respond To The Election Results

As I write this, I have no idea who will win the election.  I know who I want to win.  I know who I hope wins.  And I know what Jon says in this post.

However, no matter what happens, I do know how we should all respond to the election results.

We should love those who we voted for, who we voted against and everyone who supported these candidates.

We should all be joyful that we live in a country that allows us to participate in the process .

We should live in peace with those who hold different views and political opinions than we do.

We should exhibit patience as we pray for the Lord’s will to be done in our country.

We should show goodness to everyone, those we agree with and especially those we do not.

We should be kind to everyone regardless of their political affiliation.

We should remain faithful to the convictions we feel come from the Lord.

We should be gentle with those we interact with on a daily basis.

We should maintain our self-control no matter what situation we find ourselves in.

The fruit of the Spirit should be such a part of our lives that it is exhibited in all areas of our lives.

How do you think we should respond to the election results?

    Can’t argue with this Larry. Someone has to win; someone has to lose.

      Bill, used to you could get a tie in college football, but they even did away with that.

    Larry, This is too funny. Honest, I had no idea. I wrote my post on Monday night before I left for my business trip. I think you state well what I was trying to get across in my post. I’m so thankful for the country we live in. I pray that our leaders will lead with honor and integrity. And I pray that you and I will live our lives for Christ.

    Amen! And, I too, find it funny that you and Jon have the same titles for your posts! How we respond is very important. We do have a choice.

      We have to remember who is ultimately in control.

    These are the wisest words I’ve heard all day, granted, I’ve only been up for an hour, but it gives me a challenge to work on for the rest of the week….

    I think this is a beautiful way to look at it. I’m so tired of all the anger and hatred, most of it from Christians.

    Great words. Social media is a mess today. It is showing that even Christians have a lot of heart problems. From the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.

      Rob, What all of this makes me realize is that too many of us focus on the wrong part of our dual citizenship.

    I also think people should respond with humility.
