Our venerable Electoral College votes today in their respective states. Diehards still see options, probably extending to Inauguration Day and beyond. Let them exercise their first amendment rights loudly but peacefully, but Joe Biden won. Donald Trump lost…and lost…and lost…and lost.
One need not agree with any of Biden’s positions, policies, appointments, or nominees but Christians do need to pray for political leaders – a clear biblical mandate, not an optional suggestion. The sooner prayers begin, the better.
And join me in continuing in prayer for President Trump for the next few weeks until January 20th when he leaves the White House and becomes an unelected private citizen like me.
Southern Baptists might not be in the inner circle of the new administration but we’ve got free access to God’s throne. Believers of all kinds in all places have had that and our troubled segment of Christendom could use a little leadership right about now.
My personal plan is to have a nice Christmas, enjoy my family, especially grandkids, maybe fish a bit, eat a McRib or two, and not grind my teeth down to the nubs because the other guy won. I will, however, cast two solid Republican votes in the Georgia senatorial runoff races and may vote today as early voting begins.
I have never put an article here about which I have been less sanguine of its adoption by readers. But let’s see. It’s the right thing to do, regardless.
