We ought to honor the leaders above us
What Jesus said pointed out an obvious but often neglected truth: that we should honor the leaders above us. Rome might have been bad to the Jews, but the fact is that it remained the government above the Jews, and so the Jews were to honor it.
In the same way, God wants us to give to the leaders above us what is due to them. Whether or not our leaders are good and Godly or bad and ungodly, we ought to pray for them and do what is right to them.
We ought to honor God
Next, the Lord Jesus’ words tell us that we should honor God and give Him the praise and glory that He deserves. He should praised for who He is and what He has done, and we should not steal the glory from Him.
Many Christians fail in this. We forget to give God the glory He deserves.
Ministers emphasize their ministry. Individual Christians emphasize their personal Godliness. We tend to take credit for something that God should be credited for.
We are to remember who we are and to who we belong to
Genesis 1:26-27 tells us that we are made in the image of God. When we look at ourselves in the mirror or our smartphone cameras, we ought to realize and recognize God – not because we’re God, but because He made us in His own image and likeness.
This simple thing ought to change the way we think about ourselves and others.
We also learn to see God in every person we encounter, saved or unsaved.
We cultivate God’s love in our hearts so we can love everyone and share the Gospel to them.
We must learn to honor God in everything. He has His imprint on everything; after all, He made us all and He deserves all the honor we can give.
