Worship Government or God

Dear President Trump.  I am not a business guru.  I am not a celebrity.  I am not a politician.  I am someone trying to love my enemy, you.  To know you better I even signed up to follow your Twitter feed.  Then you tweet, “In America, we don’t worship government – we worship God.”  Just because you say it, doesn’t make it true.  Having never met anyone who ‘worshipped’ government, just what do you mean by ‘we worship God.’  Frankly, your track record as a disciple of Jesus stinks.  Not that mine is any better… but the government I do not worship guarantees that I do not have to worship anyone.  It’s called freedom of religion.  I can worship or not, my choice as a citizen.  I pray that your witness as a Christian and as President affirms our freedom to worship or not.  I know you are pandering to your constituency.  I’ve done the same thing.  My prayer is that both of us do better.  I pray God’s love so infuses your heart that we stand amazed at your love and compassion and caring for all Americans, especially the weakest, the outcasts, the vulnerable in our midst.  We both know it’s easy to love those who love you.  But can you love the unlovable?  I pray you can
