Vote with this, not this

During the 2008 election, I posted about a quote my pastor, Dennis, said a few years before:

When you walk into that voting booth, ask yourself whether you’re going to vote with this

Wallet

or with this?

Bible

The question still stands with the 2012 election that we are about to vote in this Tuesday.

What is the deciding factor in how you vote?

The economy?
The environment?
Social Justice?
All of the above?

As Christ-followers, before we color in that circle, punch that chad, or make a choice on the touch screen, we need to understand that the choices we make in the voting booth can have a profound impact on our world.

We are residents of Heaven, and with that comes great responsibility to fight and protect those that cannot fight and protect themselves.

Jobs, the environment, and equal rights are all important, but at the end of the day, life is my deciding factor.

Single issue voter? Maybe.

Knowing that after I walk out of the voting booth, I may have saved innocent life? That’s enough for me.
