Who to Vote in 2020

November 1, 2020

There is too much at stake. I tried not to weigh in. There is just too much at stake. I’ve got to tell you who to vote for.

Here it goes…

You should vote for yourself.

No, I do not mean you should write in your name for any office. Instead, I mean you should vote to be the best version of yourself you can be. You see, all your habits are like votes. This means every day you are voting. I got this from author James Clear. He says:

Every action you take is a vote for the type of person you wish to become. No single instance will transform your beliefs, but as the votes build up, so does the evidence of your new identity.

James Clear in Atomic Habits

If you want to see change, you have got to use your votes.

In worship this week I talked about this. I said:

How many of you early voted? How many of you are waiting until election day? Well let me tell you something. You have already made a pretty important vote. You voted to be the type of person who comes to worship on the Lord’s day.

From worship on Sunday, November 1st, 2020

I hope the U.S. elections go your way. As a pastor though, I care so much more about the habits you are building. Habits like spending time silent before Jesus, attending church, and loving your neighbor (even if they vote for you know who). My hope is you vote to be the person God has designed you to be.

There is too much at stake.
