Scripture Sunday: Revere and Respect

Make the Master proud of you by being good citizens.
Respect the authorities, whatever their level;
they are God’s emissaries for keeping order.
It is God’s will that by doing good,
you might cure the ignorance of the fools who think you’re a danger to society.
Exercise your freedom by serving God, not by breaking the rules.
Treat everyone you meet with dignity.
Love your spiritual family.
Revere God.
Respect the government.

~1 Peter 2:13-17 (Message)

    Funny how I always knee-jerk about the “respecting authorities whatever their level.” It’s one of my most difficult spiritual goals/walks. God blesses and encourages and prods me a bit.. for which I’m a very grateful woman! Thank you. [Now He used YOU to prod me.]
