today i am thankful for the freedoms that we have as Americans, and thankful for the men and women who have served in the military to defend those freedoms. i pray that the Lord heals our nation and turns hearts to Him, but until then i pray that we have the right attitude that God calls us to.
1 Peter 2: 13-17
13 Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme, 14 or to governors as sent by him to punish those who do evil and to praise those who do good. 15 For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people. 16 Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants[d] of God. 17 Honor everyone. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the emperor.
