Tomorrow Night

When we all go to bed tomorrow night, half of the country will be sad, upset, and angry. They will go to bed knowing that their man is not the next president. So what do we do? What can we do to make these people feel better?

Well what we ought to do is no different than what we do every day. We should be helping people see that no matter who wins Tuesday, God will still be God.

As a Christian, the glass is really never half empty. It is always full, not even half full. It is full with the love of God and the power of the Holy spirit. It is full with compassion, justice, and mercy.
So tomorrow and Wednesday and the day after as the pundits continue to beat this election to death, let's find a way to focus people on something more important than this election, let us point them to something eternal.

The cool thing about being Christian is that not only is the glass full, it runs over and never empties!

Nice Post--your glass of water almost looks like a shot glass, and when I read, "what can we do for these sad people" I thought that was where you were going--that God is still God is far better!
