To my fellow Americans
A wise person once said that fences make good neighbors and surely there’s a lot of truth in the adage, but perhaps it’d be wiser if we remembered that gates make friends. I respectfully offer three thoughts for all of us that could build a few as we move forward.
Please be gracious in victory. A divided nation needs it.
I didn’t vote with you but I’ll look for every opportunity to unite with you.
Don’t try to convince me why you were right, put your hand to the plow and prove it.
Please be gracious in defeat. A divided nation needs it.
I voted with you but I’m choosing joy, peace, and hope, instead of gloom and doom.
Don’t try to convince your choir how bad this will be. Work, pray, and serve so it isn’t.
“All things worth together for good to them that love God.” Romans 8:28
