The government shutdown has pushed me over the edge of losing faith in our elected officials. I am sure lots of you are saying “really it took you that long?” I find the inability to find rational ways to run the business of government pretty unreasonable. Maybe it’s my upbringing!
Anyway, today I wanted to urge you to keep positive despite that mess up there. I suppose many of you may not even realize that the government is shutdown! But in the meantime, find ways to help those affected, like this article suggests, and as always keep finding ways to encourage your officials to ‘get r dun’.
And more importantly, remember that, as followers of the Christ, we place our faith in something else. Something that even the government can’t shutdown! It’s keeps going every day.
38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 8:38-39 (NIV)
Let that promise govern your life as you change the world for him today.
