President’s Day

Today is President’s Day; a day we should spending in thanksgiving and gratitude for our current and past leaders of this great nation. However  this morning I was flipping through the television channels and stopped on a news station covering a march in Chicago. The signs were heartbreaking to me

“Not my President’s Day.” was on one sign that struck me as wrong. okay just typing that sent my heart rate up.

If you want to get me riled up, start bad-mouthing our President. I have resisted the urge to get in a fight with my brothers because they were bad-mouthing the President. I know you might not agree with what the President says, but the office of the President needs honor and respect. you might not like who was elected as Commander in Chief, but he is still your  Commander in Chief. I’m not making this up the Word of God tells us in Romans 13:1,

“Everyone must submit to governing authorizes. For all authority comes from God, and those in positions of authority have been placed there by God.” (NLT)

Paul is saying here that we need to submit, ”

accept or yield to a superior force or to the authority or will of another person.” to our President, Vice President, Senate, Congress, Mayors, anyone in the seat of authority over us.

 

We should spend today thanking Donald Trump for accepting the call to be our 45th President and not slashing him for being the President of the United States.
