5 May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, 6 that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
As I read these verses this week they seemed especially poignant in view of all the political pervasiveness. They do not need much commentary.
Read them. Ponder them. Pray them. Encourage others with them. And find joy in the God of endurance and encouragement and hope!
