God and Politics

I don't usually post on controversial topics here, but I saw a bumper sticker today that got me thinking. It said,

Pro-life? Pro-choice?
What do you think?

At first, I rolled my eyes--yet another person trying to claim that God supports their political views.

Then I thought about it again. I came to the surprising conclusion that God is both.

Wasn't it His idea in the first place that we humans be given the freedom to make choices? Even poor choices? Even choices that hurt or kill others?

And isn't He also the one who wants us to have life and have it abundantly? To the best of our ability to live at peace with one another?

What I think, when it all comes down, is that God is less concerned about my politics and more concerned about my heart.
