Earlier this week, I read some of George Washington’s “Farewell Address.” In it, he warned of the tendency of political parties attracting people that just wanted to increase strife in discord for their own power.
So this morning, as I was praying, I found myself praying for the USA that we’ll heal inspite of the election. That those sowing discord and strife would be thwarted.
Almost as soon as I was praying this, a fun image came to mind:
I saw people tossing seeds of thorn bushes and strife into well plowed rows. They were moving quickly.
But something remarkable was happening. Almost as soon as the seeds hit the soil, they sprang up into beautiful flowers that people naturally gathered around and admired together.
As the image ended, the sowers of discord turned around and saw what they’d planted had turned against them. The shock on their face was priceless.
Will you join me?
So I’m praying that picture today as we go through the elections here in the USA. Wherever you are, would you join me?
