Daily Wisdom: 1 Peter 2:13-15

Sunday, October 8, 2023

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. For it is God's will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men.
— 1 Peter 2:13-15
