I especially hate the division that is happening between brothers and sisters in Christ because of politics.
I hate it…until I create some of my own.
A few days ago, I received a text message from my significant other.
I was glad to see her name pop up and quickly opened the message.
After I opened it, I no longer wanted her to be significant and she was going to become wholly other.
It was a picture of her, pretty as always…with a Trump tee shirt on…taken at a Trump rally.
I was outraged…and over the next few hours evolved into a hypocritical beast with the head of an ass.
Trump is the antithesis of everything I hold to be decent and good, a nightmare that speaks when I’m awake.
While I avoid the subject online, those who know me personally know how I truly feel.
My reaction to that picture was swift and angry and stupid.
I was ready to throw away a relationship, a person, and a history because of political differences.
Irreconcilable differences in my braying opinion.
Because she is a better and more godly person than I am, we’re fine today.
I wonder how many other friends and family are close to this kind of senseless division?
No one and nothing outside me is responsible for my sin…and it was sin of the darkest sort.
Be aware however, that as we go through life the same traps we seek to free others from are set for us.
The world, the flesh, and the devil all conspire to reduce us to what we most despise.
I fell and I fell hard…and I’ll be repenting and reminded of my need for repentance for a long time.
My still significant other will see to that…and she approved this message.
Especially the part about the head of an ass…
Make your own application…
