Vote For America

pablo-38

The most contentious campaign in our lifetime for the office of president is thankfully drawing to a close. Now is the time for “we the people” to vote for those who will lead our local, state and national governments.

 

I want to challenge you as strongly as I know how – to vote! In our nation, we have the amazing privilege of voting. Countless men and women have sacrificed everything, including their lives, to leave us the legacy of freedom and the right to choose our elected officials.

 

It is especially important for followers of Christ to vote and be prayerful and careful in our selection of who we support when we cast our ballots. Each of us should guard against being unduly influenced by the media and negative ads trashing candidates. Instead, we should focus on some basic filters through which we can evaluate those running.

 

For my wife, Bev, and me, our first filter is this: Is the candidate committed to protecting the most vulnerable and helpless among us – the unborn? If the answer is no, we will not vote for them. Part of the reason we are so passionate about this as our first filter, is that we adopted both of our children as newborn babies, and three of our four grandchildren were also adopted as babies. We cannot imagine life without them and are so grateful that our children love Jesus and follow Him. God is all about life!

 

So please, VOTE! And please establish your own filter through which to evaluate the candidates.

 

Warmly in Christ,

 

Howard Dayton
