These days I don’t think you can go 10 minutes without being subjected to a political ad. They’re everywhere; on the radio, TV, internet, your mailbox. It’s crazy the amount of money that’s being spent!
Just today we got four different pieces of political “junk” mail. I couldn’t even tell you who/what party they were for as they went straight into the recycling bin.
Even more annoying than the amount of political ads is the negative tone most of them take. It’s like a vicious, no-holds-barred, free-for-all.
I wish every politician would read 1 Peter 2:1 (NIV) before approving each commercial they run.
“Therefore, rid yourselves of all malice and all deceit, hypocrisy, envy, and slander of every kind.”
Campaign commercials would look and sound a lot different if politicians read those words and took them to heart.
What Bible verse do you think politicians should remember?
