Inauguration day has arrived.
Regardless of where you stand politically, today offers a reminder that those who aspire to leadership must also cultivate the ability to graciously follow. I offer two quotes from my all-time favorite book:
Romans 13:1 – Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
I Timothy 2:1-2 – I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
Reflection: What steps are you actively taking to submit to God and the leaders He has placed over you? Consider taking a minute now to pray for those leaders by name!
