How To Respond To The Election Results

November 7, 2012 11 comments

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?

Random Thoughts At The End Of January

January 31, 2012 12 comments

Just some random thoughts I had this month.

Can you have true kindness and compassion without Christ?

We Built This City is possibly my least favorite rock song of all time.

Do you remember the show, Alice? I never wanted to kiss Flo’s grits. I prefer to eat grits with salt, pepper and butter for breakfast.

A friend of mine forgot to pray until he was halfway through lunch one day.Does it still count or is it, like, half a prayer?

Since Chi-Fil-A is closed on Sunday, should everyone eat there on Wednesday before church?
Our religion should be an expression of our relationship with Christ. One way or the other, most of the time it is.
What exactly was Kurt Cobain singing in Smells Like Teen Spirit?
52% of people do not wash their hands after using the restroom.
Why do people have to fly by you, then immediately pull in front of you, just to get somewhere one second faster?  It’s irritating, especially when it’s someone you know.
A friend of mine heard an ad on a Christian radio station for a spiritual coach.  Isn’t that your pastor?
Read that 90% of pastors spend just two hours per message on sermon prep during the week.  I know they have other stuff to do, but what is so important that they spend that little time preparing to preach the word of God?
No one has ever given me the key to a city.  If they did, I would stick it in the ignition and take the town for a spin.
The Bean Pot restaurant in Crossville, TN is closing.  I remember the last time I ate there.  This is truly a sad event.
I wish the University of Alabama would quit sending my daughter correspondence.  Not.  Going.  To.  Happen.
My daughter bought her prom dress the other day.  Sigh.
I hope you all had a great January.  Remember, it’s only 329 days until Christmas.
Did you have any random thoughts in January?
