Safe Place with Ruth Graham

Well…at last the day is upon us! I don’t know about you but I am weary of the political season that seems to go on full time…never ends. As soon as tomorrow is over – if it is over tomorrow – they will begin the campaigns for 2014…then 2016. The time and money spent ona campaign is obscene. In a world like ours with so many need and so many hurts…I am quite sure Jesus’ priorities would be very different!

But we live here and now and deal with what is in front of us. Tomorrrow we will make a decision. When we get up we can decide to vote or not. I pray you will vote – that you exercise your right, privilege and obligation. Yes, we are all busy…but this is critical. Not many people in the world have this opportunity to decide the future of their country, children and grandchildren.

We have a great country and the vote tomorrow is not so much about differing policies but differing philosphies. We have clear options. As I see it, one man’s philosphy is that government is the answer and we as a people are the tools. The other man’s philosophy is that we as a people are the answer and government is the tool.

We can make our choice. Tomorrow. Vote. And praise God we live in a free country where we can vote. We live in “a safe place”!

God bless you.
