Which is the greatest candidate? Here is one spiritual leader who is not afraid to tell you how to think in this political climate.
Jesus was asked, “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?”
Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” [Matthew 22:36-40 ESV]
Ok, so he wasn’t asked which is the greatest candidate. Regardless if you are trying to determine how to vote (and I hope you will), how to express your opinion on social media, or how you will invest your time and money; meditate on His words and allow them to become a powerful filter for your every thought, word and deed.
How will I love God completely in this moment?
How will I love my neighbor with this decision?
*In case your wondering, I listed the current candidates who are mathematically able to receive a major party nomination in alphabetical order. However, I hope you think of this blog as more about life choices than a few presidential candidates.
