So many voices are frantic:
to lead you this way or that,
to vote for this person or that,
to see the greatest danger here or there,
to empower them to do this or that for you.
What should you:
Two divine words will help you navigate the chaos:
Every person should focus here: “And He said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’”
We who are teachers should focus here: “I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction.”
So, the Word of God reminds all of us that we should Prioritize Love! Prioritize first your devotion to God, then also love your neighbor as you love yourself.
And, as for you teachers, Preach the Word! The Word is Christ Jesus, who died for sinners and arose for our justification.
The simple and right way is, therefore:
1. Prioritize Love
2. Preach the Word
This is the way.
