The campaign is over and tomorrow his administration begins. I could continue to bad mouth them and run the aggressive Anti-Obama campaign that I've been running all fall, but here are a few scriptures that suggest I do otherwise:
- Romans 13:1-2 Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.
- Romans 13:5 Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible pubishment, but also because of conscience.
We've been blessed to be led the past several years by a leader who made decisions in a long term manner, and also despite approval ratings---not because of them. President Bush and Laura have been examples of intestinal fortitude, morality, and faith. As much as I'd like "4 more years", its like Mama always says, "You got the same shoes to get glad!" Hence the attempted perspective...
So even though it will be a while before I name any sheep after anyone in this Administration, here's to each of us doing our part in sincerely praying for the new leader of our country and submitting to the authority set in place by God.
