“You who are slaves must accept the authority of your masters with all respect. Do what they tell you – not only if they are kind and reasonable, but even if they are cruel.” — 1 Peter 2:18 (NLT)

Respect and submission, particularly when those in authority seem to be unreasonable, or even cruel, is difficult. However, the Bible is clear that we should accept authority unconditionally. This is particularly difficult, I am sure you will agree, but accept we must.

May we pray, that we accept authority, even when it seems to be unreasonable. We ask for Your strength in order to do this. We ask this in the name of your precious Son, Jesus; Amen.
