1. Sincerely pray the best for him. When Obama is elected he will be an authority over us (Rom. 13:1-7). If you consider him an enemy you should pray all the more. Prayer will help purge the church of vitriol surrounding the campaign, and allow us to be a light to the majority of Americans who did vote for the new president.
2. Remind yourself that your money is God’s money anyway. Most of the readers of this blog will not fall into the $250,000 category that Obama threatens. It is, though, highly likely that his increased spending will find its way to our wallet. But, even if the most dire predictions of economic downturn come true because of his policies, we all need to remember that God has promised to supply our needs. He made everything and we have no right to worry about what someone takes from us.
3. Remember that the church is global. Our first loyalty is to the church, not America. We need to exhaust the same energies we have put into this election into the health of the global church.
4. Show compassion to unwed mothers, and ask God daily whether you should adopt. I can find many reasons to vote for McCain over Obama, but none is bigger than the issue of life. Obama's history of abortion votes is awful. I do fear that much of the progress that has been made in this area will be undone. But this is only in the legal arena. The battle for hearts and lives demands a much more personal approach. I hope that those who came to the defense of Palin's daughter will be as quick when it is a girl in their local high school.
