Spiritual Warfare: 'Be Respectful, Regardless'

God's Power for Our Battles — Thursday, October 27, 2022

Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as an excuse to do evil. Live as servants of God. Show respect for all people: Love the brothers and sisters of God’s family, respect God, honor the king. Slaves, yield to the authority of your masters with all respect, not only those who are good and kind, but also those who are dishonest.
— 1 Peter 2:16-18 NCV

Today's Prayer

Lord, Satan has been quite successful as of late in getting us all angry and impatient with each other. It seems he has put some of his best workers in positions of authority, and that strategy has worked well. Help us to show respect and love for each other; even if those who are in power are urging us to hate and slander. Help us to turn off our media and learn to love our neighbor all over again. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
