Some of you have asked what I think about all the hullabaloo surrounding Obama’s speech to the children of America.
I will make this short and sweet (especially for those of you that don’t particularly care about my opinion on this matter).
What do I think?
I think that America has become so tangled in our own opinions, thoughts, ideals and “party lines” that we have completely forgot that it is our responsibility as citizens (and Christians) of this nation to RESPECT the position of the President.
I do have to say, specifically to all of the Republicans that felt George W. Bush was vilified, mistreated and disrespected (which he was, on more than one occasion)-let’s be careful that we don’t mirror that same behavior. Especially for our children.
So, yeah. My kid would have been watching the simulcast, with the rest of the class.
1 Peter 2:13-17
13Submit yourselves for the Lord’s sake to every authority instituted among men: whether to the king, as the supreme authority, 14or to governors, who are sent by him to punish those who do wrong and to commend those who do right. 15For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish men. 16Live as free men, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God. 17Show proper respect to everyone: Love the brotherhood of believers, fear God, honor the king. “
