One afternoon, when my son was in middle school, he sat with two friends for lunch. The first unwrapped his peanut butter and jelly sandwich and departed to buy a beverage.

“No one touch my sandwich.” He warned menacingly as he left the cafeteria table.

Suddenly, my son’s package of Cheese Nips hit the floor. He picked them up and got on with the business of enjoying his chicken salad on white.

Next thing he remembered was a fist making contact with his jaw. He stood and landed a well-placed punch to the gut of the First Boy and the fight was on while the Second Boy rolled with laughter.

Of course, the mischievous Second Boy (who bored easily) took a bite of the First Boy’s PB&J while my son was picking up his Cheese Nips. The First Boy just assumed the obvious and acted accordingly.

Hey, Dr. Carson, CNN dropped the Cheese Nips, Cruz didn’t touch your sandwich and Trump is laughing his head off while you’re behaving like a middle schooler who can’t handle a fair defeat in Iowa. Tweet or no tweet, the results would not substantively have changed. Deal with it like The Leader of the Free World.

Trump is laughing all across New Hampshire as the American people are being dragged through another circus tent while, outside, Iran goes Nuclear and Obama is overrunning conservative precincts with Muslim and Hispanic foreigners hostile to our way of life.   Beyond that, powers and principalities are gloating at the disunity between brothers and reproach is falling on The Name.

Knock it off already!

Would pride prevent you from accepting the Vice Presidency, if that’s what God called you to?

You and Ted Cruz have all things in common. You both worship in spirit and in truth. He is an expert on, and a fearless advocate for, our Constitution. You are a consummate healer. That sounds like a winning ticket for president and vice President in 2016.

So, preserve the unity of the body and get on with it.

 Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
