As Christians, we are called and commanded to pray for our leaders.
Politicians listen to two things, money and votes. I grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland (30 minutes from the nation’s capital), and seen how people promise change and don’t realize it takes a lot of money and few votes to make things happen. My problem with politicians is that everyone has their own agenda. As a wise man told me, if you have the money, they are willing to listen.
In this 2020 general election, you have the power to decide on the quality of life you want for yourself and future generations. This is your life: take the time to help decide what’s best. I believe that not voting is giving up your voice. Here’s what the bible says about politics:
- God calls and uses political leaders.
- God is calling us to participate in politics.
- Ultimately, we must serve our highest authority: God.
We should come to this position only if we must, first seeking every means to obey the secular authorities while remaining true to our Lord. But there are times when we must declare with the apostles, “We must obey God rather than men” (Acts 5:29).— Justin P. Wayoro (@MrBigJustin) October 23, 2020
