The Good Thing about this Election

Tomorrow is election day. Like most Americans, I am ready for it to be over. But in the spirit of looking on the bright side, here are a few positives that I see:
  • People are taking a fresh look at government.
  • Both major parties are forced to admit flaws with their candidates.
  • Third parties are receiving much more attention.
  • The Washington ruling class (of both blue and red stripes) recognizes a deep fed-up-ed-ness in the American electorate.
  • Many Christians see more clearly that government is not the answer.
  • Christians find that they must sincerely evaluate what really matters, in terms of policy and character.
  • The church can turn its attention away from partisan politics, and focus on sharing the gospel, with its call to faith, repentance, and justice.
