3 For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, 4 for he is God’s servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God’s wrath on the wrongdoer. (Romans 13: 3-4, ESV)
We are servants of the government, which, in turn, is a servant of God. Our profession is one that maintains peace and order in a very unstable world. If a country’s ruler get out of line, God uses the governments of the world to put him back in his place. You are a servant of God.
Prayer: Lord, may my service be honorable.
