One thought on “After their own pleasure

  1. I agree that we must always respect our authorities, even when they are abusing their authority. God definitely calls us to respect authority. However, I would be careful to say that we must even obey them when their command is against God’s word. Obedience is not always required for respect. Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego disobeyed the king in order to remain obedient to God. However, they still spoke to him as respectfully as possible. That’s important, and I’m glad you’ve shared that. 🙂
