This parable has been coming to my mind lately in the light of this year’s presidential election—actually the last three presidential elections. In 2008, I heard the conservatives say, “I can’t vote for McCain. He’s a RINO.” In 2012, I heard the conservatives say, “I won’t vote for Romney. He’s establishment. We won’t let the RNC pick our candidates!” Both years we lost to an inept Democrat that is Hell-bent on destroying this nation as we know it. Yet, this year, a front runner has emerged—not from the establishment and not an RNC pick. The man is not polished, not politically savvy (or correct), not conservative, but he’s a ROCKSTAR. Americans flock to him for his untamed and unashamed bold behavior. He energizes a population that has been beaten down by numerous defeats and an ever-growing progressive society that mocks fundamental American beliefs. And I still hear, “I’m not going to vote for that guy! He’s not my guy!”
To those people I say this. God has sent you nothing but angels and opportunities. Not just since 2008, but all of your life. I trust He will continue to do so. But will you recognize His answer to your prayers? Or will you turn away and let the waters consume you? Only God is perfect. Perhaps we should all trust a little more in the imperfect for His perfection to be revealed. Where there is Love, there is faith.
