I had a thought. It’s completely unoriginal and by no means profound, but I think it’s something we all could do well to remember in these days ahead.
Prayer still works.
When you’re tempted to talk about somebody negatively, try praying for that person instead. That goes for political leaders, too.
I heard something recently that struck a chord with me. Instead of so much speaking out against the President, maybe we should try praying for him instead. That’s true whether we have an Obama or a Trump in the Oval Office.
None of us knows all the facts, but God does. None of us knows the best possible solution, but God does. None of us has the power to effect change in our circumstances and in the lives of others, but God can and God does all the time.
So pray a lot and gossip a whole lot less. Pray more and criticize less.
That’s it for tonight.
