Apples of Gold - June 29 |

Hunt, Dave

As good stewards, even when things seem impossible we should act responsibly. As far as possible, without disobeying God we should follow those in authority over us. This, by definition, would include being subject to the government we currently have.

"Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same."
