Casting the Deciding Vote

“The Election”…proven to be one of the craziest elections in the history of all elections! As we watched, pondered and prayed, there has been one thought I have continued to remember!

The Old Testament has an interesting story about Israel’s experience with a national referendum. The nation was in a state of “uneasy”, and it had good reason to be uneasy.

They had enemies threatening them on every side. Their Leader and sons were corrupt and selfish boys. Israel wanted a King. God to this point was their King. They chose someone else.

It’s what the eternal, unchanging word of God reminds us:

“Blessed be the name of God forever and ever, for wisdom and might are His. And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise And knowledge to those who have understanding.” Daniel 2:20-21

If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14

Why Should I Bother Voting?

It’s crunch time. The election only a few days away, and many have already cast their votes early. But for some, going to a booth or sending a mail-in ballot doesn’t seem all that important.

Maybe you’re wondering if your vote really matters in the grand scheme of things. How much could one ballot change the course of history, after all? The fact is, it wouldn’t be the first time.

  • No one’s perfect, but there’s always a better choice. PRAY and vote the better choice.
  • My vote doesn’t matter. If you’ve ever read a history book, you would see, many things have changed because of a few votes. What if Your vote made the difference?
  • It’s not just a right, it’s a responsibility.
  • Some say, “Voting is a waste of time.” My vote doesn’t make a difference. If you vote based on biblical values and join the millions of other who stand for those values. “You’ll find the right candidate will win!”
  • It may be hard to believe, but many elections have been decided by only a few votes. Look it up. It’s a fact.
  • I can’t even get to the polls. There are many who will help others get to the polls. Call a friend.

OK, I’m convinced. “I’m planning on voting! Are you?”

Teach Kids to Vote

A number of games can teach kids how to vote in an election and the importance of voting. With the low turnout of eligible voters in the U.S., instilling the idea of voting into students minds could lead to greater participation in the basic process of democracy. Depending on the age of the students, games can be as simple as teaching the basics of voting, or can be about more complex political considerations.
