Why Can't We All Just Get Along??

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Colossians 3:15

Wow the actions of many people after this historic election of a total outsider winning the Presidency of the United States has struck a cord in many people and caused all sorts of emotions. As a writer who tries to do my best to write from my heart not taking any certain sides, one of my readers of November 9 devotion accused me of all sorts of things that were not true, talking down to me, and insulting me in a round about way. It is hurtful but I move on and forgive this person even if they did not ask for forgiveness. 

Why I ask, can't people state opinions without you having to defend yourself so much?
The Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ, is King over all the Earth. Many were concerned with the way this country was headed and spoke out, as they have the right to do, in a most powerful way. It has been very polarizing. What my point is, is to be kind and don't judge people and accuse them of stuff. God is the only judge. Many are saying "Donald Trump is not a Christian" and only God is the judge of that, not us.

So my brothers and sisters, love one another. Stop judging and accusing so much. Maybe turn off the TV and open the word of God and don't get your opinions from the media so much. Be willing to have different opinions without thinking you are right and the other person is wrong. Above all remember our real fight is not against flesh and blood but against He great divider and deceiver, Satan. 

PRAYER: Lord Jesus I pray that brothers and sisters in Christ can come together regardless of politics and show love and kindness for each other. I pray for people to be able to turn off the news and tune in to the word of God for there is where truth lies. In Jesus' name. Amen.
