Spiritual health is critical to our physical well-being. Therefore, it is important that we allow God to govern our hearts and that we protect what enters our hearts. Scripture tells us to put our hope/trust in God, not in man (Psalm 118:9, 146:3).
Financial advisors always tell us to plan for the future, not to live just for the moment. Likewise, let us take an eternal view. We (our spirits) will be alive long, long after our bodies die. Our lives will be just a fleeting moment on the eternal time-scale. Let get our priorities right.
Fear of consequences does not produce love or even obedience. It is ONLY an enduring, reverential, and respectful love relationship with God that will keep us from sin. When we reverence God’s Holiness, when we respect His way, when we have a genuine relationship with Him we will find it increasingly uncomfortable to disobey Him, we will avoid sin.
Vote as you desire, but don’t be fooled: it is NOT the power of the poll that prevails.
