One of the bigger distractions in an election year is politics. Christians, and even churches, who share commonality in Christ, can become divided over politics, candidates, and political parties.
But when we see Jesus confronted with a question in which he would seemingly have to side with one political point of view over the other, he sides with God's kingdom. He refocuses priority on the things of God, and teaches that our faith is to guide us.
When we look further at the example of Jesus, he teaches us not to live fearfully or with anxiety, but to focus our efforts on seeking first the kingdom of God. In his own life, we see him emptying himself and taking on the lowly form of a servant, as he served all to teach us the way of God.
