1 Peter 2:17 – Honor the President

Join us in the Project 345 reading plan as we walk through the New Testament.

Context: Peter challenges Christians to “be subject for the Lord’s sake to every human institution.”

1 Peter 2:17 “Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.”

Observations:  We are to honor (timao – to treat with respect or value) everyone.  Peter specifies that this honor must also include the emperor.  The emperor when Peter writes was evil and murdered Christians.

Application: As our country focuses on electing a president, I am reminded that I am called to honor (treat with respect and value) whoever serves in office.

Are you honoring and ready to honor our president?
