Yesterday morning on my Facebook page I posted this comment:
Today is election day. How will you vote? Will you vote for someone who will do what he or she thinks is best? Or will you vote for a candidate who honors God in the decisions they make? Think before you vote!!!
A friend replied with this:
How does one know if a candidate honors God in the decisions he/she makes?
(The answer, of course, is . . . read your Bible!)

Try here (the following link) and make your choices based on God's Word.
There are some real questions to be asked when deciding who to vote for. Abortion for example. How does God feel about abortion? Read His Word! Here's God talking to His prophet Jeremiah.
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations." - Jeremiah 1:5
God knows us before we are born. So how does He feel about killing someone He already knows?
Open your Bibles to the book of Exodus, The Ten Commandments.
"You shall not murder." - Exodus 20:13
How can we Christians vote for anyone who supports murdering babies in their mothers womb?
My decision to vote for governor went now farther than the answering of that question.
So we vote. Many people in our country vote for themselves. The "What am I going to get out of it?" vote. I think that is wrong. We are told to make God-honoring decisions.
“For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth comes knowledge and understanding.” - Proverbs 2:6
Here's another good one to remember:
“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” - Proverbs 3:5-6
If you go back and read first and second Kings you will find the following phrase repeated again and again.
"He did what was right in the eyes of the Lord."
May it be so with our elected leaders.
