Today is a big day for our country. We inaugurate our 44th President, Barack Obama, the first black president in the history of the United States. No matter what you think about Barack Obama and his policies, he is now our President. And we should treat him and the office of the President with respect.
It bothers me that so many people disrespected our last president, even if they didn’t agree with him. The Bible is clear that as followers of Christ we are to submit to every authority instituted among men for the Lord’s sake (1 Peter 2:13). Whether you agree with someone over you or not, you should still respect them and submit to them. We respect authority because it comes from God and it honors Him. That is part of understanding authority.
Join me today in praying for President Obama and that he will lead our country in a godly way.
