What are you debating in your life? Each choice to do something is a choice not to do a billion other things. In this season of political pageantry and the circus cycle of the current presidential election, it’s easy to get caught up in the same arguments about who or what is better for our country. We have 2 candidates (or 3 or 4 or however many others there are) that are both flawed, sinful people because they are human.
There is no debating the fact that our country, our world, could certainly use more good people doing good things. People like the team at Rahab Ministries in Akron, OH, or Feed My Starving Children in Minnesota (they have a great food program benefitting victims of Hurricane e Matthew right now), or Thistle Farms in Nashville, TN.
Millions will watch the next Political debate, and I’m guessing they won’t learn anything new, but probably will be in for an entertaining show. Don’t get us wrong, politics matter, and it’s important to exercise our right to vote. Vote your conscience, vote who you think has the best policies for the future of America, who will nominate the best Supreme Court Justices. But local elections and organizations doing the work of making the world a better place right where you are, allow you to have a great impact on people’s lives around you.
If anyone, then, knows the good they ought to do and doesn’t do it, it is sin for them. James 4:17
So let’s end the debate. You decide. There are hurting people in need around you right now. What will you choose to support? How are you giving your life? Who will you fight for?
