Well tomorrow’s election day, and if I didn’t remember before, I remember now. I didn’t make it to early voting this year, but I’m still planning on voting tomorrow.

I don’t really have much to say about voting… It’s a right we have in the United States, a right that many have fought for over the years. I know women especially fought hard for this right in the early 1900s. I know there are some Christians out there who don’t participate in voting, or who get really wrapped up in it. And there are a lot of people in general who don’t vote, I don’t know their reasoning behind that decision, but it seems to be a large portion of the population.

And I admit, there are times I really don’t feel like voting either. And I’ve definitely had the thought that my vote won’t make a difference one way or the other. But even if it might feel like that, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t participate. I’m not saying as a Christian you have a duty to vote, I don’t know how much God really cares about that. He probably cares more about your heart and why you’ve made the decision to vote or not vote, and I’ll leave that between you and God.

But I heard something from a friend the other day, and well, I’d like to quote him on it. “Don’t complain if you don’t vote.” I know technically you can complain, no matter if you vote or not, but I think it speaks to a certain truth. If you want change to happen, do your part to make it happen. Don’t just sit back and complain about something that you’re not willing to do your part to fix.

So be a part of the change you want; go vote.

Well there’s my little rant for the day. I hope you make it to the polls tomorrow, no matter what ‘side’ you’re voting for.
