(Spirit Daily) – When is politics worth our time? From the Imitation of Christ (Thomas a Kempis):
How much should we be concerned with politics? To what extent should we indulge in the intense debates that pervade the "airwaves"?
If we adhere to the teachings of Thomas á Kempis, the monk who -- quoting reputed locutions from the Lord -- penned the classic Christian work The Imitation of Christ, not very much; at any rate, less than we may think.
As you have almost certainly noted, from time to time, we ourselves carry political stories (when they have a spiritual or eschatological ramification). There are searing issues like abortion. People like Sister Lucia of Fatima made sure to vote!
