Respect in so many forms is important; respect for authority, respect for our peers, respect for ourselves even! But when I think about respect for the Lord, I know that it is the most important. One thing that my father taught me, was to have respect for the authorities in my life. I have always appreciated that because I’ve felt like that made it easier for me to accept, and respect the authority of God in my life.

Because of the respect that I have for my God, I can have life, real life. I can have security.

Thank You, God, for my father that taught me to respect authority. A theme in my life is, You are God, and I am not. Thank You for being there for me always; for my life with You, for Your protection and love. AMEN

Father, as You look down from heaven, my desire is for You to see me looking to You for my help and guidance. Psalm 14




Proverbs 14:26-27



26 Those who respect the Lord will have security, and their children will be protected. 27 Respect for the Lord gives life. It is like a fountain that can save people from death. (Proverbs 14:26-27 NCV)
