Election 2008: The Day After

The day has finally arrived. You have been consumed by this election that seems to have lasted forever. You watched the debates. You likely had many conversations with friends about the campaign. You may have even volunteered for a campaign. And you have finally cast your vote. So how do you respond the day after, once the results are in?

Unfortunately many people will wake up Wednesday morning in a very bad mood. They will believe that because their candidate didn’t win that we as a nation are doomed, perhaps that God’s judgment is upon us, or that they must now threaten to leave the country. Once reality has sunk in, many people will start thinking about how to fight against the president-elect and may even begin engaging in character assassination.

As a Christian, I have tried to give some thought as to how I should properly react to the election results.
