Thou wilt shew me the path of life:
in thy presence is fulness of joy;
at thy right hand there are pleasures
for evermore. Psalms 16:11

Why is about half of our country Republican, and about half of it Democrat?

It is because of how God created us with beautifully different personalities.

It's like saying the glass is half full or the glass is half empty.

Imagine there are two brothers, and one likes to say, "Don't tell me what to do!" while the other one thinks he always knows best (although sometimes he does and sometimes he doesn't, of course), and so he is always saying, "This is what you should do!"

Those conflicting personalities will always have contention. But neither one of them needs to be eliminated. They are both needed.

Wisdom can understand this. Democrats don't think they are hurting anyone by bossing people around and having the government manage everything. Republicans don't think they need to be bossed around, and they don't see why they need to pay heavy taxes to have the government manage everything when that's what their personality already wants to do independently for its own self.

Only where there is unity is there strength.

And unity means loving people who are different from us. Yes, that even means Republicans. Yes, that even means Democrats.

Love God

Proverbs 3:5John 14:1John 3:16

God, please help us to have faith no matter how small, and trust in you in our hearts. Help us believe in Jesus who died and paid for our sins so we can be forgiven if we ask you to forgive our sins in the name of Jesus. And thus enter our hearts and help us to grow in love for you.
