Now, I know that none of us are Jesus, I know humility is not our nature. Its not the easy path for us! It takes work and effort. But as we as a country become more and more split, as we pull further apart, as more and more of us feel drawn to identify with a party or a candidate, I think it is more critical to hear the call from scripture, to humble ourselves, to draw closer to God, so that God will grow closer to us.
So, As you watch the continued coverage, as you see the billboards and bumper stickers, as you hear from people you completely disagree with, and as you feel more drawn to identify with a particular candidate or issue, remember first, to humble yourself.
Remind yourself that your first identity, as well as every other person, was as a beloved child of God.
