Blessed Are You

The bottom line is this, our elections in general and this one in particular are mixed blessings and necessary evils that proceed from and are guided by the sinful hearts and minds of men. Whoever is elected, we will still have our poor, and our rich, among us [Matthew 26:11]. In all likelihood these will be pretty much the same people no matter who is elected.

So, the people of God do their best to elect those who most closely administer according to that which is conduciv...
e to good, i.e. godly, conduct, and a terror to bad conduct. For that we look to the Ten Commandments, particularly the Second Table regarding our neighbor.

All that said, it is but a lengthy introduction to the election that really matters for us and for the world. That is the election this feast day we celebrate today is all about. God's election.
