The hate all over my social media timelines is breaking my heart this morning. The saddest part of it is that I expected to start the morning with a new president and those who “won” or “lost” continuing to beat each other up.
The president does not, and can not, determine how you treat your neighbor. He can not decide how much love you will give and speak to those that may disagree with you, or you disagree with them. He can not change your relationships with your family and friends. He can not harden your heart or change how you will follow Jesus in this season. He does not determine how much you can pray for our leaders and the hurt/turmoil this election season has caused.
One of the best pieces of marriage advice I’ve gotten so far is, “If you two disagree, but your fighting for a "win” still hurts him/her, you still lost. You’re in it together.“ We all lost today. We’re in it together.
