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.
Respect the government.
~1 Peter 2:13-17 (Message)
