Don’t forget to Vote!

April 27, 2011

Well, have you made up your mind yet?  You’ve had five weeks to decide but I’d be willing to wager that you had your mind made up long before then.  As a matter of fact, I would suspect that there hasn’t been much done or said over the past five weeks that has had much of an impact on the decision that you had already made…… but then again maybe I’m wrong, it’s happened before.

I’m talking about the federal election of course.  You did remember the election, right?  I mean, how could you miss the signs, ads and television commercials?  So, after listening to all the hype and all the promises you now have to intelligently cast a ballot.  A daunting task to say the least, but it must be done!  Some people say that it doesn’t matter because no matter who you vote for a politician will still get in. 

But as a Canadian you have an obligation to vote. People around the world would die to have that privilege and when you give up your right to vote you give up your right to complain.  And as a Christ Follower, you have an obligation  to pray for your leaders, whether you voted for them or not. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
