Fear the LORD and the king, my son, and do not join with rebellious officials, for those two will send sudden destruction on them, and who knows what calamities they can bring?

– Proverbs 24:21-22 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

This proverb tells us to be careful with those who are in power. To frustrate a strong leader will only cause problems for those under them. This is not telling us to cower before leaders, for notice the first part: fear the Lord. When God is the ultimate authority in our life, He can give us the wisdom to know which conflicts to address with those in authority and which ones to let slide by, for we can win the battle but lose the war.
