Peace in Politics

Back to Growth Plan List

Ahhh, election season 

Don’t you just love it? A time of name-calling, anxiety, and cautiously attempting to avoid the long list of possible landmines that could ruin your close relationships. There is no doubt that our country’s political season gets ugly. It’s a time many of us are not proud of and potentially wish we could avoid altogether. But the reality is, we simply can’t. During the political season, our posture, our behavior, and yes, even our votes, matter. And as followers of Jesus, we are called to emulate him -- his love, his compassion, and his call for us to seek the kingdom of God above all else. 

A better way

Even amid a polarizing political season, I believe there is a better way. I believe there is a kingdom-way to navigate and thrive in this divisive time in our country. I believe God offers us a path forward, marked by peace, humility, and unity. 

Through this guide, I hope you are equipped, challenged, and impassioned to choose the path of peace God offers. And from that peace, my hope is that you are moved to share it freely with your world. 

We each have our own circle of influence, and as kingdom Christians, God wants to use you as a representative of a greater story, one filled with hope, joy, and peace. 

Let’s seek to live differently than the world around us. Let’s strive to have a resounding impact in our communities. Your unshakable example of God’s love will speak louder than you may ever know.

What this is:

-- A guide to finding peace in this divisive time

-- A call to seek God’s kingdom above all else

-- A reminder that love must come first

What this isn’t:

-- A guide for where to place your vote

-- An opinion piece on specific political issues

-- A recommendation to avoid engaging in politics altogether

Gratitude

The beautiful thing about gratitude is that it reminds us of God’s character. It reminds us that we are loved by him, and he has promised to take care of us.

Kingdom-Minded Action
