Read Romans 13:1-5 TLB
Suddenly the game warden walked up and asked, “Don’t you see that No Fishing sign?”
“But,” he protested, “I’m not fishing. I was giving the little fish a lesson in swimming.”
That’s a fishy story!
A real Christian not only obeys the laws of the Lord, but also the laws of the land.
What the world needs is not more Christianity but more Christians who practice Christianity not only where they worship but also where they work, not only when they pray but also when they play.
The Living Bible says, “Obey the laws, then, for two reasons: first, to keep from being punished, and second, just because you know you should.”
Prayer: Make us, Father, godly Christians and good citizens. Implant within our hearts a love for Thy laws and the laws of the land. Make our lives to be radiant Thy presence: in Christ. Amen.
