Check this article from this week’s edition of Ministry Briefing:
Andy Stanley, pastor of North Point Community Church in Alpharetta, GA, takes a different look at the political system than most of what is in the daily media. He says a lot of adults in the church are putting their hope in the political system instead of Jesus, and that can create other problems.
“All of you who are 45 and older, look up here,” Stanley says, “Many of you have grown weary and lost heart and the reason is–you have fixed your eyes on a political system… and you are growing weary and you need to knock it off and I’ll tell you why… because you are scaring the children!”

The bottom line:
- Put your trust in Jesus, not the political system
- Our kids pick up on our attitudes and outlook
- “You need to model for the next generation that God is in control, God can be trusted.”
