I'm not going to pretend to understand the health care debate.
I've tried. I've read. Well, I've read a little.
What's interesting is the response of, specifically, Christians - lots of whining and complaining. In the last few days I've heard and read ridiculous things like, "I'm gonna have to move to Guam" or "this is just the beginning of our freedoms being taken away...first National Health Care, and next forced abortions!".
Really? Because I didn't read anything about that. I read some stuff about millions of Americans just like me who need health insurance....but nothing about the end of the world or Satan moving into the White House.
Maybe this whole insurance thing is the worst decision ever.
I'm pretty sure God is bigger.
I thought my husband having a brain tumor was a pretty bad idea, but God has done some amazing stuff through that whole situation. And whether or not health care reform is a good idea or a miserable one, God is still on the throne. He's still the one who arranged the freckles on my daughter's nose and wakes the sun up every morning. There is no health care crisis that is somehow bigger than what He can handle.
Sure, voice your opinion. Call your congressman or help inform your friends...but let's make sure that in all things, our message is Christ and the HOPE he brings!
(I'd love to talk to you about health care reform. But not if you think you have all the answers, or want to convince me to think the way you do. You're invited to come over for dinner and we can talk about life and mercy and justice and eat chocolate cake....the way civil people do)
