Today is Thursday. It has now been over 24 hours since the election results came in and we are at a crucial point.
How do we move forward?
I think there is a massive difference between DISAGREEMENT and DIVISION.
You see, disagreement, in friendships, marriage, school projects, work teams and even in governmental reform, is not a bad thing. Look around– do you see everyone covered in flesh? Great, me too. That means disagreement will always be a component. It is a byproduct of our brilliant and God-given minds fiercely protecting what we believe.
Yes, there are certain battles in which a middle-ground is impossible to attain. And then there are others, in which finding resolutions that better our world for ALL people is actually a possibility.
But DIVISION? Oh no. Division is a whole other animal. Division is a silent killer. Division keeps our hands over our ears, a wall over our hearts and a film over our eyes– we isolate ourselves so that we don’t have to be challenged. We are certain we are right and we arrogantly refuse to hear another’s view.
Ya wanna know something? Satan thrives on this. Absolutely thrives. This is how he builds his kingdom. Because he knows that when the people of America link arms rather than throw arrows, he has absolutely no place to work.
You have a choice. I have a choice.
I know some of us (my political affiliation doesn’t matter) are heartbroken. Tears fill our eyes and hopelessness rears its ugly head. We have responded in fear, lashing out at others on the opposing side, because we don’t understand.
And so what I am asking of ALL of us is this: Take your hands off your ears, put down the bricks to the wall you’re forming around your heart, refresh the filter for your eyes and seek UNITY.
Every American, every politician, every human at this point now has a choice to make: Do I link arms, propelling change and seeking resolutions with my brothers and sisters OR do I hold them firmly by my side, refusing to be challenged, which also removes my ability to see and help them see?
We are commanded by the King of Kings to respect authority. He tells us to LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is For brothers to dwell together in unity!”-Psalm 133:1
