1 Peter 2:17-18
Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king. Servants, be submissive to your masters with all fear, not only to the good and gentle, but also to the harsh.
-Everyone desires respect disregarding their race, gender, age, religion, nationality or social status. Respect is a catalyst of peace and a display of love for one another; as Christ calls us. We should always remember that God created both the rich and the poor; and honor should be given to each one (Prov 22:2). Further, all kings are chosen by God and honor should be given to them. By speaking well of/to them, obeying the law, paying taxes as they are due and submission to their authority for the glory of God. Also; to submit to the leaders in authority, in our churches, work places, government etc, taking heed to the word of God. Christ died for the whole world and there is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female; for we are all one in Christ Jesus. We who are born of Christ bear the same spirit and belong to the same family of faith. We are therefore reminded to submit to the authority of Christ who is the head of the church through fear and love, and always do His will.
Lord You are good and Your mercies endures forever. Thank You for all the leaders that You have given us. We pray that by You may give them wisdom to lead all people according to Your will. Grant us the grace to honor and respect all people without prejudice; disregarding their social status, age, race, gender, religion and nationality. You are the Lord of all people Father, may Your peace that surpasses all understanding dwell in all the nations of the world. Fill our hearts Holy Spirit; with love so that we may always love You and our neighbours as ourselves. Amen
