At Jenks West Elementary, Building B, we voted yesterday. On campus. Not everyone. Only some turned out to the polls. Those in Adventure Club. The before and after school day care for our pre-K friends. They learned about how voting works. How to cast a ballot in private. They didn’t vote for president, although they did all share what they thought the president’s job is.:) Instead they cast their ballots for their favorites: things they better understand, kittens or puppies, chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry and their favorite movie.
Elections are a fair way to choose a favorite. That which is favored by the majority. But did you know that our God would really prefer us not to pick sides or show favoritism?
Anytime we choose a favorite, we run the risk of alienating another, making them feel less significant, less valued if it is a person we are voting for. We are all equal in God’s eyes. He has no favorites.
Today we have a winner. A new president. A wealthy entrepreneur rather than a seasoned politician. Some or happy with the outcome. 🙂 Some are sad. 😦 The majority chose their favorite.
As with all elections, we need to follow in the electron process just like our friends were taught yesterday at Jenks West Elementary, Building B. We need to honor the majority win. At the putcome of the resilts, we need to show our enthusiasm if our favorite won or say nothing if our favorite did not win by majority. My mother always told me, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.” Good words to live by. 🙂
When it comes to others, let’s all keep our favoritism to ourselves. Let’s make everyone feel favored. Equally. Then God will show His favor to you. ♡ When it comes to our new president, let’s support our new winner. Whether or not that was our personal favorite or not. The candidate elected by the majority as the favorite.
Congratulations to Donald Trump, our new President of the United States! .☆May God bless him as he now governs America. May he return it to one nation under God. ♡
I solemnly command you in the presence of God and Christ Jesus and the highest angels to obey these instructions without taking sides or showing favoritism to anyone. 1 Timothy 5:21
Love and laughter,
