Bible Verse of the Day

Regarding the travel ban...

The Kingdom of God is by it’s very nature International in scope and make up (Matt. 28:19). Governments are responsible for their own citizens. Christians hold dual citizenship (Phil. 3:20) and sometimes are faced with conflicting “laws”. While we are to be in submission to the authorities (Rom. 13:1), our highest obligation is to God (Acts 5:29). “Welcome the stranger” may include risks that those in positions of authority – whether it’s government officials (Country) or parents (home), need to thoughtfully weigh & consider. We live in a dangerous time & world. This Executive Order was announced as “temporary” – input around common sense concerns should be channeled respectfully thru our elected leaders. And don’t forget to pray for “all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives” (l Tim. 2:2)
