A Vote For?

 

I think we all want to live a life that is right and good and fair.  These types of things we hope for from our government. - Is that what we always get?  Too often that may not be the case.

 

Proverbs 4:23 says, “Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life.”

 

 That is what we need to do for our selves and our loved ones and hopefully to some degree for our friends, perhaps even our neighbors.  When our neighbors seek to govern, to be elected and to govern us, they need watch over us with great care.  So, if we are to have the inalienable rights to seek life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and along with the other enumerated rights in the Bill of Right: such as freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and freedom of assembly we need to vote for those who uphold life, and those rights and principles.

 

Do we ask - “Are we voting for blessings, fruitfulness, prosperity and our posterity as well, or are we voting for those who do not support this list of things and our founding principles of life and liberty and pursuit of happiness - considering faith, family, friends and foes alike - do we want more of less of:

 

Š      Life

Š      Liberty

Š      Happiness

Š      Religion

Š      Right speech

Š      Honest and upright publications

 

How wise is it to have more government in the bedroom, boardroom, our mothers wombs, our examination and school rooms, our babies and children’s parts in their lives  - or should we be well educated and able to decide for ourselves with thoughtful and thorough reflection in making choices for ‘We The People’ and our to be elected neighbors

 

Please choose wisely.

 

Thank God for mercy and good fruit, as well as the fruit of the Spirit - may we vote for those who elect for more of them in our lives.
