When Jesus taught people to love their neighbors as themselves (Mark 12:30-31) and treat others as they would be treated (Matthew 7:12), he was teaching people to seek the Common Good.

When Paul said, “Do not seek your own personal interests alone, but also the interests of others,” he was teaching the Common Good (Philippians 2:4).

When John said, “Since God loved us so much, we also ought to love one another,” he was teaching the Common Good (1 John 4:11).

When Jesus said, “Whatever you do for the least of these, you do for me,” he was inviting us to seek the Common Good (Matthew 25:40).

When Jesus said, “You cannot serve both God and money,” he was teaching the common good (Matthew 6:24).

The Common Good teaches us to seek what’s best for everyone, beginning with the last, the least, the lost, the most vulnerable, and the most forgotten.

This understanding not only shapes our world view, but it guides our voting choices in 2018. Vote Common Good.
