Verses Hid in Our Hearts
1 Peter 2:13-14 (NIV) Submit yourselves for the Lord's sake to every authority instituted among men: whether to the king, as the supreme authority, or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right.
I know that sometimes I complain about my government. It taxes my family too much, this politician didn’t do what I wanted, I’m sick of the president. Yep, I complain a lot. But these verses remind me that this isn’t what God wants me to do. He wants me to submit to them. He wants me to honor them. I may not agree with everything they do, but I should do what is right.
Is there an authority you haven’t been honoring lately? Why not ask God to help you submit to them today?
