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?
