Victory in fair-play

All we want is fair play, for the sake of harmony.  No one enjoys a game where everybody or many do cheat.  The past elections were meant to reflect the people’s will and freedom, to prove that there is still some degree of freedom within the nation, in such wise that they could still place whom they will in power.  If not possible, then we are no free nation anymore, as far as democratic elections are concerned. 

When I heard some oppositionists using foul revengeful language, I felt so sad.  It will then be impossible for them to win.  You can only win over evil by doing good.  But if you go down to the level of the beasts, you eliminate the possibility for victory.  If we use evil ways how can we conquer evil?  If we desire revenge how different are we from the others?  We can only conquer evil with good (Rom. 12:21).  You cannot right a wrong with another wrong.

Let there be fair-play, not hatred.  Sure we all know that there is such a thing as greed for power.  Yet if we play our cards right in the manner of God’s law, we will surely have the chance to win.  “If only my people would keep my law, quickly my hand shall subdue all their foes” (Ps. 81:14)
