R-E-S-P-E-C-T

I heard a story this week about one of our Georgia Congressman who walked out of the national prayer breakfast in Washington DC when the President was speaking. Obviously there are many levels to this gesture. At the very lowest level it is nothing but political grandstanding. At the highest level it reveals a profound loss of respect for political office. Whether you like the policies and positions of your elected leaders – they ARE your elected leaders and worthy of respect. Both the Apostles Paul and Peter require that we “honor the Emperor.” We must do no less than honor our president for his office. Let those of us who claim to be Christians start acting like Christians!
