(Your Vote Matters)
The campaign period for elections brought about the feverish clash of campaign strategies and propaganda that was heard all around. But certainly people delved deeper within all that clash. We tried to see who were there to really be an example of leadership with service, serving the interests of the people, not just the attractions of money and power. Jesus already explained His mission as one of love and service. “Anyone who wants to become great among you must be your servant, and anyone who wants to be first among you must be slave to all. For the Son of Man himself did not come to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mk. 10:45).
Let’s trust in the Lord and be unafraid of those who manipulate and want to maliciously change election results to their favor. To be fair each of us must operate on the principles of truth, justice and honesty, and vote wisely and honestly for those who, we believe, will guide our country and nation to better times of peace, reconciliation, progress, and justice. What’s important is our trust in God Almighty whose power is above all the feeble, puny, human efforts of fallacious people who desire to manipulate election results to their favor. We do our part to vote honestly, in conscience for the honest and prudent leaders to be at the helm of our democratic government, a government of the people, for the people, and by the people. This means, we cast our vote with a prayer to God alone who is in control for those who truly trust in Him and pray to Him in the sincerity of their hearts.
