Wise John Wesley on Voting

I found this nice bit over at ArminianBooks.com blog.  From Wesley’s journal, October 3, 1774.
I met those of our society who had votes in the ensuing election, and advised them:
1) To vote, without fee or reward, for the person they judged most worthy.
2) To speak no evil of the person they voted against.
3) To take care their spirits were not sharpened against those that voted on the other side.
It's been interesting hearing the little bit of USA presidential election coverage on radio from here in Bogota, Colombia.  It does seem less biased.  But now it's time for bed.  We'll have to wait 'til tomorrow to find out who God has ordained, for the powers that be ARE ordained of God.  Our family has been praying for God to put into power he who will best advance God's kingdom.
