Pause for Thought

However happy or disappointed we are about the recent election results, in 1 Peter 2 the Apostle, Peter gives some fab advice about honouring authority and respecting those who govern us.

What makes his advice so astounding is, at that time, Nero was in charge – the man infamously known as the Emperor who ‘fiddled while Rome burned’. 
I guess Peter’s teaching would be a hard pill for many to swallow.
However, with this election result now settled, could it be time for us to do less petitioning and a little more praying for those who are now in charge?
