Zoom, Zoom!

As we vote for the next President of the United States our future will be decided. It is our responsibility as Christians to take part in this decision. Our decision should not be about what political party we belong to but what drives us.
Solomon said, "The laborer's appetite works for him; his hunger drives him on." (Proverbs 16:26)
We are all driven by one appetite or another, one hunger or another—which one is driving you this year? The hunger to provide for your family? The hunger to succeed? The hunger for recognition? Or the hunger to make a difference in eternity? The hunger to please God? The hunger to change lives?
The war is not the issue. We’ve been in many wars & survived them all.
The economy is not the issue. We have survived many recessions and the Great Depression only to have the highest standard of living in the world.
Health care is not issue. Even with our health care problems we still lead the world with the highest standard of health care.
Social Security and other governmental assistance programs are not the issue. We lead the world in taking care of our sick and elderly. These are not perfect, but they are far superior to any other nations.

These issues will not make or break our nation and Christians cannot afford to make decisions in this election on such issues—we must concentrate on spiritual issues.
As our country continues to to abort babies at the rate of 4000 a day and is dangerously coming close to accepting and legalizing homosexual marriages one issue should drive us—The Appointment of Supreme Court Judges. Four members of the U.S. Supreme Court are over seventy years old. If any or all retire in the next four years, who do you want in the White House appointing new ones?
Jesus said, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled." (Matthew 5:6) Let this be the hunger that drives you today: The hunger to do good, the hunger to be good.
As a Christian, I can NEVER separate myself from Jesus. Everywhere I go He is with me—including the voting booth. That means there's really NO choice. It's not the economy, or the war, or Social Security—it's what is right as the Bible so says. Vote, but vote right.
If you are confused and/or frustrated by what I’ve said, please pray that God will give you discernment and wisdom, the ability to see which leaders are in accord with His values and laws, and that His will be done through your vote.
Please remember the consequences of our votes upon our children and grandchildren. Don’t let the idea of a few more bucks in your pocket now penalize the future of the next generation.
