Our Relationship to Others


I like to use “The Blog” for my personal editorial input.
Yet the following seems to me to good not to share.
I do a daily devotional text, mostly to veterans I have contact with and don’t mind a daily faith based thought and usually a Biblical text, some may have noticed we have included them in the Veterans Chaplaincy Homepage.
In today’s social climate of religious animosity, it seems like open season on police officers and political mudslinging crossing all past boundaries.
This was a recent text used from the CBN web site.

Foundations of the Faith:
OUR RELATIONSHIP TO OTHERS
"It was testimony time in the Monday morning chapel service at the Bible  School. A girl named Olga stood to testify.

 >She and a fellow student had gone to work in one of the local churches   the day before. While they ministered, several drunk men entered the    church and began to fight. As the believers fled, one of the men  accidentally stabbed his own son who was also drunk. When Olga saw  that the young man was injured, she and her friend stopped and began to  help him. Their own lives were in danger but they saved the life of an  enemy. "Let's pray," she said, "that the young man will live and find  Christ as His Savior."

 >We bowed our heads in prayer, but I wasn't praying only for the young  man. I was also thanking God for Olga and her love for others--even her  enemies!
 Olga had learned what we learned that one way to show our love to God  is by loving and helping others. Let's see what God's Word says about 
 our relationship to others.

Those Over Us
  >Everyone at one time or another has had someone in authority over  him. Children have parents over them, parents have religious and  political leaders over them. Even those leaders have others who tell  them what to do. What does the Bible say about our relationship to those  who are over us?
 Parents should be loved, honored, and obeyed. Ephesians 6:1-2 also tells  us, "Children, it is your Christian duty to obey your parents, for this is  the right thing to do. Respect your father and mother."

  >Rulers such as policemen, judges, and governors should also be  obeyed. "Everyone must obey state authorities, because no authority  exists without God's permission, and the existing authorities have been  put there by God" (Romans 13:1).
 As believers we have leaders like our pastor, the church board, and  Sunday school teachers. They should be respected and obeyed in matters  pertaining to their responsibilities.

 "Obey your leaders and follow their orders. They watch over your souls  without resting, since they must give to God an account of their service.  If you obey them, they will do their work gladly; if not, they will do it  with sadness, and that would be of no help to you" (Hebrews 13:17).
 Only the authority of God is higher than that of the leaders over us. The  only time that obedience is not required is when they would ask us to do  something that is expressly against God's commandments or will. This  happened to Peter and the other apostles when they were forbidden to  preach. Peter knew that God must be obeyed above all else. Acts 5:29  says, "Peter and the other apostles answered, 'We must obey God, not  men.'"
