No escape it seems, from the politics of the time. Can be discouraging, downright discouraging. Naturally, we measure candidates, issues, and reactions to the words of Scripture. It's our guide as disciples. To not submit them for measure would seem strange, even an abandonment of values and beliefs.
It's hard to assign such priority, as if we were the ones enthroned to do the assigning, but nonetheless it is hard to give God's voice such weight, because it leaves all our submissions pitifully unequal to expectations.
What do I do when reality is discouraging and the prospects unpromising. I do what believers have been doing for centuries in a variety of cultures and political systems. "I walk by faith, not by sight." Close your eyes and take a step. He's got this!
