The time for campaigning is over. Stop. It’s past time for you to do your job and govern. Stop the unending arguments over differing interpretations of the Constitution and petty politics.

Set aside irreconcilable differences when so much is at stake! Find common ground even under the most polarized conditions. “Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace in the midst of conflict.” — Romans 14:19

The way to agree to disagree is to recall that each of us will answer to the Lord not only for our opinions but also for how we treat one another in our differences. There are some things more important than our own ideas. All of us will answer for whether we have looked out for one another.

Remember to agree to disagree, but govern with mutual love and respect and be patient and kind with those who don’t necessarily agree with us about anything and everything and enjoy no peace.

P.S.: These principles also apply to college campuses.
